After completing the 3 day and 2 night Outdoor Recreation Leadership program, you will then become a certified member of FamCamp®! The FamCamp® program provides a trailer full of camping equipment and a campsite reserved at a State Park.  The campground is usually located relatively close to an urban area and is available during the prime camping season.  10 of these FamCamp® trailers are located throughout California (including Humboldt!) and each one accommodates up to 30 campers.

The trailer contains tents, sleeping bags, pads, stoves, lanterns, propane, and other essential items for camping.  Participating groups need only bring food, personal gear, and a willingness to try out something different.  The groups are responsible for the care of the equipment, proper storage after use, and washing the sleeping bag liners
