Mountain Camp Woodside is a traditional summer camp that offers both a sleep-away Resident Camp (for grades 2nd - 10th) and a Day Camp (for grades K-10th) program and is nestled in the heart of beautiful Portola Valley, California on the 63-acre campus of the Woodside Priory School. Mountain Camp Woodside's minimal technology, non-competitive program is designed to build confidence and independence, encourage friendships and healthy lifestyle choices and other 21st century skills. We offer activities like mountain biking, arts & crafts, soccer, swimming, archery and outdoor survival. In today's hectic, high-tech world, we believe a back-to-basics approach to outdoor recreation and plain ol' fashion "fun" is critical to building a child's positive self-image. A quality summer camp experience will provide education, challenge, achievement and acceptance. Mountain Camp Woodside's unique atmosphere allows children to learn in a fun and safe environment that encourages independence while nurturing lasting friendships.

From campfire songs and skits to the first time away from home, the camp experience can have a profound impact on a child's development. Mountain Camp Woodside is accredited by the American Camp Association ( and is a member of the Western Association of Independent Camps ( We are dedicated to meeting the highest standards in the camp industry. Our camp programs inspire campers to try new activities, build independence, make friends and take home memories that will last a lifetime. Mountain Camp Woodside camp sessions are one-week long and run throughout June, July and August. Many campers enroll for multiple weeks or even the entire summer! Please visit for more information.
