Camp Winnarainbow, California's Premiere Circus and Performing Arts Sleepaway Camp was founded by cultural icon Wavy Gravy more than 40 years ago.

Located 3 hours north of the Bay Area in beautiful Mendocino County, Camp Winnarainbow offers one and two week sessions during the summer for children ages 7-14. Classes include circus arts, drama, multi-cultural dance and martial arts, play production, trapeze & aerials, tightrope, juggling, unicycling, stilt-walking, gymnastics, magic, music, clowning, art, and environmental awareness. All sessions end with a fabulous show for families & friends.

Swimming is available every afternoon in Lake Veronica, complete with 350-foot world-class waterslide. Organized sports are played on a regulation basketball court and sports field. Lodging is in canvas tipis. Three delicious homemade meals are served each day; always with vegetarian and vegan options.

Our mission is to create a living environment of love, safety and harmony by building a diverse community of children and adults, where all can learn to appreciate one another through the performing arts. Camp Winnarainbow provides a training ground to nurture leaders for a more peaceful and sustainable world.
