About the Event

Join us for a day of LEARNING and CONNECTION at this Camp Now, Wine Later event.

CAMP NOW (education)

Begin your day with professional development focused on some of the lessons learned from recent wildfires in California. With experts on hand and first hand sharing of how our camps were affected, attendees will gain valuable knowledge and resources.


WINE LATER (celebration)

After our minds are full, and to do lists are full, you deserve to kick back and treat yourself to an evening of wine tasting and dinner amongst your extended camp family. Hosted at the beautiful Catholic Charities St. Vincent's School for Boys in San Rafael, enjoy the live jazz music, the delicious food, and stories of your memorable summer.
