    Camp Augusta Wilderness is a summer camp program that provides one-week backcountry experiences for kids and teens in Northern California. Based in Nevada City, California, we travel to beautiful locations and facilitate backpacking, horse packing, rafting, and rock climbing trips.

    Camp Augusta is unique and astounding among summer camps. An intentional community operating on consensus and flat hierarchy, Augusta has the longest staff training in the country, a very high staff-to-camper ratio, a meticulous hiring process, and a bafflingly long list of activities, each carried out to a surprising depth of detail and collaboration. It is an organization that can only pull-off what it does by having a community of 100% committed, 24/7 staff believing in what they do.
