Camp Newman is located 65 miles north of San Francisco. Traffic can make the drive take 2 - 3 hours, so we highly recommend you leave as early as possible. Some people take a full or 1/2 day off, and you can arrive at Camp starting at 4:00 pm. Come early and take a hike, play some sports, or just relax! We're encouraging everyone to carpool, but if there is enough interest, we may rent a bus. If you can't find a ride, please let us know and we'll help you find one.
