About Redwood Area Camp

About Us

Redwood Area Campmeeting, located in southern Humboldt County, has been the delight of thousands of campers dating back to the 1950’s.  The first Seventh-day Adventist event was held at the Cookson Ranch along Redwood Creek.  It has been a long-cherished summer destination for those seeking solace and spiritual renewal.  When you come to the redwoods in late July, you will experience the luxury of fog-cooled mornings and hot afternoons, which might beckon you to the banks of the Eel River.

  • The classes held by the Northern California SDA Pastors are awe-inspiring.  Daily morning and evening meetings for attendees of all ages cover many topics.  For children, the pastors create elaborately themed stages where kids can learn of the abundant love of Jesus through singing, storytelling, praying, art, and socializing.  Some children come strictly to enjoy the social aspect.  We remember those days.  Even some of us mature folk enjoy that part the most. This campground is an excellent environment to allow kids a bit of old-fashioned independence where they can meet up with old and new friends while exploring the great gift of God’s nature.

    We aim to provide you and your friends and family an opportunity to meet God for the first time or refresh your relationship with Him through any of the meetings offered.  It’s also a peaceful place to renew your strength for your ministry.  Whatever your reason for traveling to California’s beautiful north coast, we pray you will be blessed.

Volunteer Opportunities

Sign up now for Memorial Day Weekend 2024 Camp Cleanup!

Redwood Area Camp always has Volunteer Opportunities!

Maintaining a camp the size of ours is already a chore. Add the fact that it is in a flood plain of the Eel Riverand that fact is magnified ten-fold.

Each year, volunteer weekends are scheduled, and the mighty and faithful crews that come often find anything from downed trees, branches, mud deposits to plumbing and broken refrigeration units.

We invite you to join our efforts to keep your campground safe, inviting and in working order.
