Camper's Corner

Big Sur Land Trust Campers! Here’s the place for you to bring the feeling of Camp home! Stay connected with fellow campers and nature, and receive updates about events and other opportunities.

Not part of our camps program? Here’s a glimpse into some of the fun, learning experiences that campers have while immersing themselves in the special environment that only Big Sur Land Trust can offer.


What's New

Youth Leader Position

Together again outdoors! Back to the woods with you in the lead! Come back to camp and get paid to help build a new Big Sur Land Trust camp program! See the Youth Leader position description here for more information and how to apply.


Help BSLT build a new camp program!  

Do you want to go camping? Backpacking? Like the idea of sleeping under the stars? BSLT is creating a Wilderness Camp for youth aged 16+ at our beautiful Mitteldorf Preserve. This camp should be exactly what you need it to be, so share your voice by taking this 8min. survey!

We invite input from everyone, no matter your experience, age, or comfort in the outdoors. This survey is for parents, youth program leaders, teachers, former campers, current campers and non-campers alike.


Nature @ Home

Nature is all around us, even in your neighborhood.

With the growing understanding of the mental, physical, and social-emotional benefits of spending time in nature, it is more important than ever to stay connected. For those of us living in cities that may seem more difficult…but it is possible!

Learn how you can find connection to nature wherever you are.
