Looking toward dining hall Mendocino Woodlands State Park, about thirty minutes inland from the spectacular Northern California coast, is a natural wonderland nestled in a 700-acre temple of redwood trees, ferns, glades, and meadows alongside a gentle (in summer!) river. Its rustic cabins and lodges were built during the Great Depression, and are protected as a National Historic Landmark. The Woodlands has been operated by the nonprofit Mendocino Woodlands Camp Association since 1949. Every year, when we return here for Sufi Camp, we feel much gratitude for the many improvements we see, as well as for the preservation of the rustic spirit of the site, in harmony with nature. Read more about the Woodlands on the MWCA web site. There's a great (but somewhat outdated) video on the About Us page of the website.

NOTE: Regrettably, this beautiful, rustic camp site may present accessibility issues to some persons with physical challenges. Well-maintained dirt trails connect the cabins, dining hall, dance hall, and other class venues, and there are stairs and hills. If this description brings up any questions in your mind, please contact the registrar or the camp manager to inquire.
