This year's San Francisco Camp New Harmony is Wednesday 12/27/17 to Monday 1/1/18

Registrations open on or about Sept 16, and close on or about Dec 1.

More news as it happens. Watch this space.

I won't post the workshop calendars until early November, but feel free to post your workshops now, if you like.

See you at camp!

From Camp Newman's Facebook page 9 October 2017: The news sounds bad, but the camp committee will wait a few days and not make a decision until we get more specific information from the Camp Newman staff. The camp has built ten or so new cabins over the last five years, and a lovely health and welcome center. These new buildings are in spaces that are very "defensible," so maybe they survived. There are many other buildings that go back to the time when the camp was a military cooking school, and those buildings are in much more vulnerable locations. I'm hoping against hope, I suppose, but I think it's a good idea to wait until we get solid information.

Well, we have a new location for Camp New Harmony. It will be at Camp Monte Toyon (click) at Aptos, just south of Santa Cruz. This camp is much smaller than we're used to, so registrations will be limited. We won't reopen registration until we've confirmed that everyone who has already registered, will be accommodated. Give us a week or two. Then we'll have a limited "early bird" discount period.
It's a beautiful camp in a beautiful location. Not a bad drive from the Bay Area, but tough on us Sacramento folks.
