WELCOME TO OUR
Welcome to Camp Earnest, a former summer camp in the mountains of northern California, just over an hour from Yosemite National Park. We invite you to visit with us to relax your mind, open your heart, move your body, fill your belly and enjoy nature.
Camp Earnest is our home, and a gathering and event space near the towns of Twain Harte and Sonora, just two and a half hours (140 miles) east of San Francisco. We're at 3,500 feet of elevation in a ponderosa pine, cedar and manzanita forest with light snow in the winter and mild summers. Thirty minutes east you'll find Dodge Ridge Ski Resort and an hour north of us are the wineries of Murphys and the giant Sequoias of Calaveras Big Trees State Park
Our 21 acres are available to groups through a "campus buyout." The property includes a rental house, several cabins, two yurts, an Acoustic Amphitheater and a meditation and movement hall and more. Enjoy our fire pits and circles, rock labyrinth, and walking path down spring fed Turnback Creek, with little waterfalls.
At Camp Earnest we host groups of up to 50 people at a time. Despite our name, we are not a children's summer camp. We provide a relaxing place to stay and chef prepared farm to table feasts. We bring Good People together, produce and host facilitated programs and workshops that ground us in our shared humanity and hopes for an inspiring future.
