What are the accommodations like at camp?
There are a range of housing options at camp. There are a limited number of dorm rooms that accommodate up to three people. The dorm rooms are frequently reserved for campers with limited mobility or families with young children. We have numerous tent cabins which are canvas tents stretched over permanent wooden frames with decks of various sizes. In addition, many campers bring their own tents or van for camping at a discounted rate.
There are five main bathroom and shower areas throughout camp, shared by all.
Can campers bring pets to camp?
Pets are not allowed at camp. There are no exceptions.

You are encouraged to invite your friends and family to join us for the final performances at the conclusion of each week. We ask that guests register in advance and are welcome to stay overnight (up to two nights).
Is there a swimming pool?
Yes, the pool is open during designated times of the day under supervision of our lifeguard.
Do I need to bring my own instruments to camp?
The majority of campers bring their own instruments and amplifiers to camp. Depending upon the class, there is often the opportunity to rent an instrument for a nominal fee.
Is there a safe place to store instruments during camp?
Yes, instruments may be stored indoors in Small Dorm B. This room protects instruments from the elements and is locked overnight. Be sure to put your name on your instrument!
What is the food like at camp?
At Cazadero Performing Arts Family Camp we are fortunate to feast on fresh, local, and, whenever possible, organic food.
Can camp accommodate various dietary needs?
Our kitchen staff will work with you to accommodate many dietary restrictions, but may not be able to meet all your needs. A refrigerator is available on the dining hall deck for people with special diets. Please bring your own storage containers and label with your name.
Will there be internet or cell service at camp?
Cell service and internet connections are not available at camp. Many campers remark at how wonderful it is to be unplugged for a week, especially for family bonding. However, as needed there is a phone available in the dance hall but you must have a prepaid long distance phone card (available to purchase at the camp store). In case of emergencies, you are encouraged to share the camp office phone number (707) 632-5159
What is the weather like at camp?
Evenings are cool under the redwoods. We advise sweaters, warm jackets and hats for outside evening performances and plenty of blankets or extra sleeping bags.
What to Bring to Camp?
All campers will be mailed a packing list in the weeks leading up to camp. The packing list is a helpful resource, especially for first time campers! Please remember to bring a warm jacket, insect repellent, sunscreen, and a water bottle. And of course your instruments and amplifiers as needed for your assigned classes.
