Camp Hammer

Our Camp

Camp Hammer is a Christian camping facility located on one hundred acres of redwood forest in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. Camp Hammer was founded in 1965 by people who wanted the youth in this area to know the love and truth of Jesus Christ. That same mission lives on today. Each session 150+ campers enjoy a program designed to engage their specific age group and celebrate the fun they can have by being themselves.


Our Staff

The summer staff comes from a variety of locations throughout the country. They all desire to work with youth at a summer camp. In order to be hired our staff must apply, interview, submit references, and complete a background check. We also begin each summer with training about safety, camp policies, and and up to date California camping regulations . Our intentional community of staff lovingly serve every camper.
