El Cerrito Camp Ravencliff

The information presented here is subject to change as camp guidelines and COVID-19 conditions shift. We ask for your understanding that camp information will evolve as we get closer to summer, and changes/updates will be noted in our Parent Handbook.



Join us as we celebrate our 20th summer in beautiful Humboldt County along the Eel River. Campers and teen leaders will enjoy the great outdoors among redwood trees and participate in activities that include canoeing, sports, crafts, performing arts, friendship and team building, self-reflection, and so much more. Our staff are an incredible group of talented, caring, and fun people, many of whom are past Ravencliff campers and teen leaders themselves. Prior to the first day of camp, staff participate in rigorous training that covers such topics as camp safety, group development, camper/teen needs and camp programs and objectives.

CIT Program: EC Camp Ravencliff's teen leadership program offers students entering grades 10-12 a unique experience to foster professional development while still enjoying everything Camp Ravencliff has to offer. CIT's will be assigned to a cabin to assist the lead counselor in all aspects of cabin life. They will also fill the "TILT" role (there is no TILT program in summer 2022), and help to facilitate different camp areas from daily activities, to meal time, to campfire and more. CIT's will be role models for campers, work together with their peers, and receive support and personal development from camp staff. This is a great program for those who may want to work as camp counselors or with youth in the future. CIT's must be available for the FULL camp session.

Limited space is available in the teen program, so those interested must apply via JotForm application. Applications are due no later than Friday, April 1st. 

All teens must commit to two pre-camp meetings to be eligible for the CIT program. A Director will inform you of the dates if accepted into the program. CIT's will also need to provide verification of full COVID-19 vaccination before 6/10/22.



Cancellation before May 10th will have a $50 cancellation fee.

Cancellation before June 11th: $150 (deposit amount) forfeited; camp fees refunded. 

Cancellation on or after June 11th: if camper/teen's spot is not filled by the start of camp, no refund will be given. If spot is filled, deposit and 50% of camp fees will be forfeited and remaining fees refunded.
