Camp Directors Ann & Hobie Woods founded Roughing It Day Camp in 1972 and continue to be intricately involved in the daily operations of camp. They designed Roughing It to be a place where campers of all ages could learn, grow and thrive in an atmosphere that is safe, fun, and nurturing to the spirit of every child. Their mission lives on to this day, 40 years later. Daughters Amy and Katey, as well as thousands of children throughout the Bay Area, have grown up spending their summers here. Amy is currently Assistant Director at Roughing It and has been on staff for over twenty years. Katey is currently a school counselor.
Ann and Hobie are active members of the American Camp Association (ACA), and with their efforts Roughing It has become the longest ACA Accredited Day Camp in Northern California.
Their camp activities are structured to promote self-confidence, respect, teamwork, and of course, FUN! A summer at Roughing It makes a significant contribution to the emotional and social development of each camper. All of our campers’ favorite activities help them develop the life skills necessary to live, work, and play well together. Starting on the first day, campers work as a team, develop self-reliance, build confidence, problem solve, and become positive members of our caring community. Our caring, adult staff set positive guidelines and build strong supportive relationships that enable every child to reach their full potential.
Roughing It is ideally located on 900 acres in the beautiful Lafayette Reservoir recreation area, with nearby swimming and equestrian sites. Their longer sessions are the key to campers’ success! They currently run four and eight week session options, where lifelong friendships are made, self-confidence grows, new skills are achieved, and fun fills every day. Campers spend their entire session with the same small group of their peers and have the time to bond with one another and the staff, become proficient in new activities, enjoy the outdoors and achieve beyond their expectations. Each week builds upon the next, and their counselors utilize specific activities to promote teamwork and friendship.
