Welcome to beautiful Oakland Feather River Camp! enriching Lives through community in Nature
Imagine thousands of brilliant stars in the night sky, the calming sounds of rushing water, sunny blue-sky days, children's laughter, or the stillness of a quiet morning. This is the essence of Oakland Feather River Camp.

Camper's have returned, year after year, to this tranquil sanctuary that encourages community and connection. An amazing love of the land and lifelong friendships were, and still are, a common outcome of this summer camp experience.
The camp has a long and colorful history. It was founded by the City of Oakland in 1924 and for many years campers arrived on the famous Zephyr train, being dropped off right in camp. Though the train no longer stops at Feather River, the call of the rails continues as the train whistles on its way through camp.
Oakland Feather River Camp, located near Quincy, CA, nestled along Spanish Creek, is now operated by Camps in Common, a small non-profit corporation formed in 2003 to support the City of Oakland in keeping the camp alive and vital for the urban Oakland community.
Camps in Common's mission is to promote and celebrate connections between nature, family and community, creating unique opportunities to advance environmental awareness, cultural diversity, and youth empowerment.
