The Witherbee Wilderness Camp is a unique opportunity for returning campers currently in 8th-11th grade to experience camp in a whole new way.


Offered in partnership with Lasting Adventures and Outward Bound California, this 10-day program features time at Camp Bob Waldorf plus a rugged 7-day backpacking trip through beautiful landscapes such as Big Basin Redwoods State Park and Yosemite National Park. No electricity, no electronics, no plumbing…just the campers, their guides, and the great outdoors!

Please note: Witherbee Wilderness Camp is physically challenging. Campers experience significant changes in elevation as they hike mountainous terrain carrying 30-40 pounds of equipment and supplies. They cook over open fires and live outdoors. Additionally, participants must provide their own weather-appropriate clothes, some backpacking equipment is provided – including sleeping pads, a sleeping bag, backpacking backpack, and more.
