This coastal camping retreat is the perfect blend of adventure, nature, and relaxation – an experience you won't want to miss!


The Coastal Town of Santa Cruz:  

Santa Cruz has it all, beautiful beaches, surf spots just off shore, redwood forests for hiking, and in close proximity to Monterey and Carmel... it's got something for everyone. For those that want to explore the quant beach shops and downtown area, this is the perfect spot! Spring is an amazing time to visit, the summer fog isn't hiding the sun yet, and the summer crowds haven't swarmed. We will be camping just steps away from a gorgeous beach, with some of the best sunset lookout points that California has to offer. A great mix of NorCal and SoCal vibes in one place, be sure not to miss out on this weekend of fun! 




Arrive at our Santa Cruz campsite at your convenience on Friday, but don't forget to inform your host about your estimated arrival time. Once you're here, we'll swiftly set up camp and make our way to the beach just in time for a breathtaking sunset walk. As the evening rolls in, get ready for the ultimate camp experience! Enjoy a delicious dinner under the starlit sky, staying warm by the beach bonfire, and top it off with the classic favorite - s'mores! Please note: Those who carpool will get dibs on the premium/closer parking spots, please post a message on the message wall if you can help contribute to carpool. 



Rise and shine! Wake up to freshly brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast prepared by your camp host.

Afternoon Hike: We will fuel up for the day ahead, as we embark on an awesome group hike through a redwood forest. This scenic trek is about 4.5 miles long and will immerse us in a lush, green wonderland. 

Afterward, we'll return to camp for some well-deserved relaxation time. Take the chance to explore the beach, soak in the ocean breeze, or kick back and relax in a cozy hammock. Or are you feeling extra adventurous? Stroll into the quaint town area and discover its charming shops and fun attractions. Whatever we decide, it's always fun making memories with new UD friends! 

Dinner/Campfire: As the evening approaches, your host will work their magic to prepare a delicious group feast and set up a cozy campfire for all to enjoy. After a sumptuous dinner, we'll take a leisurely sunset walk, soaking in the breathtaking costal views. Back at the campfire, it's time for some more fun and camaraderie! We will bring along our favorite group games (bring any you may have), this is the perfect way to pass the time while we wait for the full moon to light up the night sky. There's something so incrediably magical about lying on the beach, gazing up at the vast expanse above, with a bright full moon lighting up the dark night sky.




Wake up to hot coffee and hearty breakfast for our last day at camp. We will pack up camp and get prepared for days adventure.

Local eatery & secluded beaches: We will have lunch at a yummy bakery and cafe that overlooks the ocean, and spend the afternoon exploring secluded beaches and coves in Northern Santa Cruz county. This beach is absolutely stunning, it's the perfect place to spend the day. Your host will bring some beach toys, like a kite and a volley ball... it you have favorite beach games, bring them!
