Redwood Christian Ashram

Join us July 4-8, 2022 in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The Redwood Christian Ashram

The Redwood Christian Ashram is a family camp that has been meeting at the beautiful Redwood Christian Park in the Santa Cruz mountains for over 60 years. Camp is always held the week of the 4th of July. We have now had four virtual gatherings with people attending from across North America, the United Kingdom, India, and more. We look forward to being together in person this summer.
