About Camp Harmon

Accredited Camp

 

Camp Harmon History

Camp Harmon is located in Boulder Creek, CA amidst the beautiful redwood forest of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Easter Seals Central California has owned and operated Camp Harmon since 1963, when two sisters from a pioneer logging family, Jessie and Mignon Harmon, charitably sold the land to Easter Seals for $1.  Camp Harmon continues to be a magical place, offering camping opportunities to hundreds of people with disabilities, thanks to the donations of many generous supporters.
