Did your kid LOVE outdoor camp?  Then they would LOVE this!  Good for 2018 summer too! Mountain Camp Woodside is a traditional summer camp that offers a sleep-away Resident Camp (for grades 2nd – 10th) and is nestled in the heart of beautiful Portola Valley, California, on the 63-acre campus of the Woodside Priory School.

Mountain Camp Woodside’s minimal technology, non-competitive program is designed to build confidence and independence, encourage friendships and healthy lifestyle choices and other 21st century skills. We offer activities like mountain biking, arts & crafts, soccer, swimming, archery and outdoor survival. In today’s hectic, high-tech world, we believe a back-to-basics approach to outdoor recreation and plain ol’ fashion “fun” is critical to building a child’s positive self-image. From campfire songs and skits to the first time away from home, the camp experience can have a profound impact on a child’s development.

Mountain Camp Woodside is accredited by the American Camp Association (www.acacamps.org) and is a member of the Western Association of Independent Camps (www.waic.org).  We are dedicated to meeting the highest standards in the camp industry. Our camp programs inspire campers to try new activities, build independence, make friends and take home memories that will last a lifetime. 

Mountain Camp Woodside camp sessions are one-week long and run throughout June, July and August. Many campers enroll for multiple weeks or even the entire summer!

Please visit www.mountaincampwoodside.com for more information.

Our diagnostic evaluation includes a battery of widely recognized tests used to identify a student's academic strengths and weaknesses.  The evaluation also includes a personal consultation in which we will explain the results of the tests and the processes of reading, spelling, comprehension and writing as they apply to the individual student.  The diagnostic service is offered independently, or can be used to craft a remediation program with realistic goals for the individual.

We use multi-sensory, research based programs to develop an individualized plan to remediate difficulties in reading, spelling, reading and listening comprehension, verbal expression, writing, vocabulary, critical thinking and study skills.  We work in a one-to-one supportive environment that promotes growth in skills, confidence and a feeling of safety that is not always available in a classroom or group learning environment.

Located between Irving and Judah in San Francisco.

Expires January 1, 2018.  ​This Certificate is not transferable for other services.
