Labor Day Camp

Join us for Labor Day Camp 2024!

Friday, Aug. 30th to Monday, Sept. 2nd, 2024

Mendocino Woodlands State Park, Mendocino, California

Winding down a dusty dirt road, deep into the Coastal Redwoods of the Mendocino Woodlands, you will find a beautiful place to BE… where people are happy to welcome you for who you are, not what you are… where you are encouraged to be and let be… where you are included in the Family, not despite who you are, but because of who you are… a place where it is safe for kids to be kids. Welcome to the warmth of the woods in early September and the warmth of community. Welcome to Labor Day Camp.

About Labor Day Camp

Labor Day Camp is an annual four day camp of Northern California Unitarian Universalist Camps and Conferences taking place the first weekend of every September in the Mendocino Woodlands State Historic State Park.

Cooperative Community

Labor Day Camp relies on the cooperation of the community to assist in chores, activities, workshops, setting up camp, and packing camp back away. The community spirit of Labor Day Camp is rooted in the Seven Unitarian Universalist principles and our 50+ year legacy of hosting our camps in the Mendocino Woodlands.

Childcare, Workshops, & Activities

Labor Day Camp does not offer set childcare or workshops like Family Camp. Campers looking to volunteer and receive a discount on their registration can participate as full-time or part-time cooks or dishwashers. All campers are encouraged to bring their crafts, games, and other activities to share.

How to Register for Labor Day Camp

Registration for Labor Day Camp opens annually in Late July. Registration sign-up forms will be linked to announcements about Labor Day Camp via Email, Facebook, Instagram, and News section of this website. After submitting your registration, you will receive an email with an invoice from the Registrar that includes your camper tuition and notice for security deposits.

Volunteer Staff

Apply on the registration form as a full time or part time volunteer as either a cook or dishwasher to receive a discount on your camper tuition. After you submit your registration form, our Head Chef will approve or deny your request before our Registrar sends you your invoice. The Head Chef may also reach out to you via email or phone to verify your staff position before you receive your invoice.
