Roughing It Foundation's Mission

The Roughing It Foundation provides camperships to children to attend Roughing It Day Camp and other Northern California ACA accredited camps.


Roughing It Day Camp was founded in 1972 by the Woods Family, and continues to this day to be operated by Hobie, Ann and Amy Woods. The Woods Family has always been committed to including children from diverse backgrounds in their camp community. To achieve this goal, the Roughing It Foundation was founded in January 2002 as a
not-for-profit organization to provide camperships to children who would benefit from the camp experience and may otherwise not have the opportunity to attend camp.

We love Roughing It! Thank you so much. It has made a real difference in my children's lives"
-Lisa Tanon, mother of Tommy (1st grade, 1st year) & Kristen (HDC)
