ABOUT CAMP LOMA

In the stunning Santa Cruz Mountains, Camp Loma is a magical place, with open fields, giant redwood trees and a babbling creek that runs through the camp.

Though Camp Loma is truly off the beaten path, it provides hot showers and flush toilets, a commercial kitchen, creek fed swimming pool, and plentiful camp sites.

These woods offer spacious beauty and profound tranquility, where we can explore together what it means to live and learn in compassionate community. 

Immerse yourself in nature and rediscover the joys of the great outdoors. Say goodbye to the hustle and bustle of the modern world, and hello to fresh air and adventure in Rumi’s Field.

Camp Tuition Per Person*


We understand that sometimes you may need to cancel due to circumstances that changed after you made your original plan to attend camp. We value flexibility, knowing that you are tending to the needs of your family. We want to be responsive to both your needs and those of the organizers of FHC who have made financial commitments in order to hold camp. 

Our cancellation policy is guided by our care for your needs and our need for integrity and financial sustainability. We have made agreements with our venue and our chef, each requiring a final count for camp by a specific date. This final count determines the fee we pay them, regardless of cancellations after that date. 

If we cancel we will return to you 100% of your tuition payment.
If you cancel on, or before June 30, 2024, we will refund your tuition, minus a 10% cancellation fee. 
Cancellations made after June 30th, 2024 will not be refunded* 

*Covid Considerations: If you must cancel due to a positive covid test, please provide us with a time-stamped photo of your positive covid test and we will refund your tuition, minus a 10%.

Why Family Heart Camp?

Payment Options: 

Although we accept credit card payments, we are also delighted to receive a payment by check.

*Financial Assistance: It is important to us that camp is accessible to every family wanting to learn skills for contributing to peace in the world. If you experience the fee to be a barrier to your families participation, please email our camp host to explore alternative financing.

Our site, Camp Loma, has plenty of room for your tent or van, however there are no electrical hookups for RVs. There are bath-houses with flush toilets and warm showers. There are no cabins or beds. So come prepared with whatever you need to sleep comfortably. The nights in these Redwood groves can be pretty chilly, even in summer, so bring that extra blanket or two!

Most cell phones do not get reception here, however there is a landline for emergencies. And most can get reception a few minutes drive up the road.

If you need any last-minute essentials, don't worry! The Summit Store, only 6.5 miles away, has got you covered.
