About Our Auction
This year our major beneficiary will be the Girl Scouts of Northern California. They will use the funds to remodel the kitchen of the Hidden Falls Girl Scout Camp in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The project will allow them to welcome campers displaced from other sites damaged in last year’s devastating wildfires. The kitchen is currently not up to code and needs significant work to host potential resident camps in the future. This project will prepare the kitchen to be ready for a primitive camping program this summer by replacing the refrigeration units and purchasing appropriate cookware for outdoor cooking.
Tucked away among the giant California redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Camp Hidden Falls offers 90 acres of outdoor space where Girl Scouts can connect with nature, seek out challenges and adventures, engage in learn-by-doing activities, and build friendships and traditions.
