Summer Camp

Summer camp at Berkeley Forest School is a time to soar and stretch our imaginative muscles, make new friends, and reconnect with our seasonal forest friends who come and rejoin us each summer! With foraged foods, and campfire cooking, we will nourish our bodies and souls together in the sunshine and playing the cool and calming creek under the beautiful redwoods of the Berkeley Hills. We collaborate on natural dye projects, tracking skills, clay work, and lots of singing, music-making and storytelling!


Our summer camp is in a mixed-aged group, just like our school year programs. We are now enrolling current BFS families, and families with children age 4 - 8 years old. We maintain a small group with a 5:1 ratio, half of which are typically retuning families. We meet Mondays through Thursdays from 9am - 2pm.

Camp is $325 per week, or all 8 weeks for $2,300. If this is out of your financial accessibility, please read about our Tuition Equity and let us know that you’d like to participate.

It’s the freedom and inspiration! That’s what keeps us coming back. My children know they’re loved, and feel allowed to be fully themselves.
