What's Included


The first meeting of the Redwood Area Camp was held on a summer weekend in 1951 in Redwood Creek. Since then, Redwood Area Camp has expanded to 100 acres of land and about 1700 campsites. It says in the Bible that the “trees of the field shall clap their hands.” Every year at camp meeting attendees get a taste of just that. Some of the tallest trees in the world grow in Humboldt County. This area also features six rivers, one of which is on the border of the camp. Storage facilities, vehicles, trailers, and other improvements make the Redwood Area Camp one of the nicest locations where Seventh-day Adventists from Northern California and the western United States can gather together and worship in God’s sacred out-of-doors. Volunteers are needed to help with wood cutting, painting, renovations, and general cleanup. Please consider joining this project before this years camp meeting!
