Welcome to the Summer of Social Distancing at Camp HOME. With the pandemic having canceled all our favorite summer festivities, we decided to bring the summer magic HOME with a family-friendly summer camp for adults. Throughout the summer we’ll be offering yoga, live music, dance parties, workshops, field trips and more!

*THIS OPTION DOES NOT INCLUDE A CAMPSITE AND IS SOLELY A PARKING SPOT FOR THOSE CHOOSING TO DWELL IN THEIR VAN*

We’re only three miles from downtown Nevada City, one of the most amazing small town in California, and three miles from Scott’s Flat lake. The Yuba river is a 20-minute drive, and there is a small stream that runs through the property.

Despite the pandemic, we believe that it’s still possible to create community and have fun by practicing harm reduction techniques, including gathering outdoors, maintaining adequate distancing, and frequent sanitizing.

While all of our campers and larger community are invited to participate in our daily programming, it is not inclusive of our camping rates and an additional donation will be requested.

HOME, or Healing Our Mined Ecology, is a year-old community on 11 beautiful forested acres outside of Nevada City and founded on the principles of permaculture.

Nice place. I stayed in my van in a little parking lot more near the front of the property. It was dark and a bit later in the evening when I arrived. I feel like this could be a really fun place to stay with friends and/or if they had a gathering going on like it sounds like they sometimes do in the summer. I didn’t meet Josh but he seems friendly from messaging. Porta potty was clean, property is well kept.

I slept in my car at the overnight parling spot in this wonderful and amazing scenery. It was a peaceful way to take in the full moon on Halloween and get a good nights rest. Josh was amazing and responsive to any needs as well as offering more covered areas to park and sleep. It was nucw having a porter potty at the location as well. This area is breath taking and i would love to come back and fully camp out in the future.
Very safe ❤

Knew I could not get across Sierras in one day and never having visited Nevada City, I chose Josh/HOME where I found a very clean porta potty and a running water sink. For the price of parking one's car in someone's small backwoods, I had the budget to nosh and sip my way around wonderful, historic, and hip Nevada City two nights. During the day Josh's woods are very shady (and you will need a lantern at night) so I found on Nevada City library website that folks are welcome to park in the library parking lot and use the wi-fi all day which was handy. So much to see around there, Yuba River and Empire Mine and more. The town though is prob. the best intact concentrated historic town in California with a modern economy. Surprisingly pleased by the whole experience.

Josh was very accommodating during my stay. I was even able to work with WiFi from the parking area. Place is quiet, serene, chill and inviting. Hope to be back soon.
