Camp Hammer


Camp Hammer is an "exclusive use" Christian camping facility available for weekdays, weekend and week long retreats from September through May. Our excellent summer camp program for kids entering fourth through twelfth grades encompasses the months of June through August. Sleeping accommodations are in carpeted and heated cabins equipped with bunkbeds and restrooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag, pillow, towels, toiletries, etc. We offer two suites for your speaker/pastor in which we provide towels and linens. Camp Hammer can accommodate a maximum of 164 overnight guests.

For your main meetings we recommend David Kraft Hall (DK Hall). This is a large meeting room with an entire wall of windows providing an abundance of natural light. A fireplace keeps things cozy for winter or evening meetings - we supply the firewood. Camp Hammer has a marvelous video and sound system available for your use, including: Sharp Vision, VCR, soundboard, speakers, monitors, CD and tape players. DK Hall is framed by a roomy redwood deck surrounded by majestic redwood trees.

For smaller meetings, break-out groups, or just relaxing, the lounge under DK Hall provides a casual atmosphere with leather couches, fireplace, refrigerator, billiards, ping pong, Foos Ball and shuffleboard. Groups with small children often use the lounge for child care while the adults attend the main meetings upstairs.

Leave the cooking to us! Guests eat at round tables and enjoy the great food, friendly service and homey atmosphere. Complimentary coffee, tea and other beverages are available throughout your stay. Our staff sets the tables for each meal but requests your help in clearing tables at the end of each meal. Please check with the Camp Hammer Staff if you have special dietary requests or needs for your meals.

There is a central restroom facility conveniently located in the middle of camp. Although most cabins and guest rooms have private showers, our main restroom facility provides five additional private showers on both the men's and women's sides.

Our large outdoor pool is available from May 1 through October 1. It is surrounded by a cement patio, has a diving board, and has a lifeguard platform on the side. There are men's and women's changing rooms with showers and restrooms adjacent to the pool. Your group must provide a currently certified lifeguard when minors are present.

Central to camp is our large grass playing field. Your group can play softball, football, soccer and other group games here. We also have a sand volleyball court, two basketball half courts and horseshoe pits. There are miles of beautiful trails to hike along in adjoining Big Basin State Park. In the evening, your group might enjoy singing, sharing, roasting marshmallows or just relaxing at the fire circle which is located in a secluded part of camp surrounded by majestic redwoods. Redwood benches form a semi-circle around the fire pit, and we provide the firewood.
