Date and Location of our next campout to be announced soon! To be added to our interest/waiting list, email

Here is a sample of our program showing information from our last event.  It was lots of fun!

May 31-June 2, 2013
San Diego Mountains

Join us for another fun family adventure connecting with nature. Friday afternoon we will set up camp, explore the area looking for wild edibles* & learning about the local animals. There will be a simple potluck for dinner Friday (bring something to share).

Saturday and Sunday will include identifying and eating wild edibles & medicinals, using fire making tools, exploring the land and practicing survival skills. Saturday evening we will share a potluck dinner. There will be storytelling for the little ones (and young at heart).  Teens & adventurous parents will explore their nocturnal senses on a night hike without flashlights, guided by Earthroots Instructors.

This event is limited to 50 people (including children).

Cost per family to camp $175-$225 (sliding scale*)
Additional parking/access fees may be up to $15 – yet to be determined.
