Our new School-Age Overnight Family Program is a unique opportunity to gain valuable academic enrichment for your student(s) through an unforgettable outdoor experience for your whole family!



So many of the students from our partner schools have been looking forward to their Cal-Wood program this school year, as this has been a tradition for many generations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that bringing the students with their class is not possible at this time, but we still want to offer a unique, limited, and safe opportunity to experience the outdoors at Cal-Wood to the students and their families.


  1. Find a group of at least 9, preferably 11, families from your school, learning pod, or neighborhood that would like to participate.

  2. Have each family complete the online application form.

  3. Cal-Wood will be in touch to finalize dates and provide all of the information you need.

To minimize the potential threat of COVID-19, we will accept only 11 families per program. Each family will stay in their own cabin, meals will be served individually to each family, and each family will have a designated table far apart from the other families.  During the day, in our 1,200-acre classroom, we will have one Cal-Wood instructor for every two families or maximum of ten people. We will require masks when in groups and when social distancing is not possible.

Cal-Wood staff will adhere to all CDC/WHO, state, and local public health guidelines at all times. If you are interested in learning more about our COVID-19 specific policies and procedures, please contact Cal-Wood directly.


You can register for 3-days, 2-nights or an overnight program. 3-day programs can be scheduled for any days of the week or weekend, including Sunday-Tuesday programs.

Each program will be developed for each group so we can support the academic goals and content for the students' curriculum. Content may include: pond studies, animal adaptations, forestry/ecosystem dynamics, homestead, and much more!  

Parents will be responsible for providing transportation to and from Cal-Wood.

We have upgraded the internet in our cabins to allow for access to distance learning and working remotely!



The cost to participate is $200.00 per person, with a maximum of $600.00 for a family of 3-5 individuals. This cost includes 6 meals, two nights lodging, instruction during the day, two evening programs and accident insurance for those who don’t have health insurance. Kids under 5 years old are free. If you are bringing more than 5 family members, please contact Cal-Wood to coordinate.

Families in need of financial assistance can apply for a partial scholarship. To apply for a scholarship, please contact us. 

The revenue from this program will help Cal-Wood survive the pandemic as all of our regular programs have been canceled. 


To enroll, parents will need to apply online. After a family submits their application, Cal-Wood will send a confirmation, and then the family will pay the $25.00 deposit to complete the registration process. After this process is complete, Cal-Wood will send an information package to help families prepare for their program. Registration is on a first come – first served basis, so please apply ASAP.
