Join us for beach camping at Sweetwood Group Campsite, part of the State Parks at Half Moon Bay!

There will be a three-hour conservation service project. All the tools and gloves will be provided. 

Please wear closed-toe shoes, layers that could potentially get dirty, sunscreen, and bring a refillable water bottle.

Other trip notes:

  • You must always be with a buddy scout
  • If you intend to play in the water, please bring water shoes
  • We are asking that people bring frisbees for playing on the beach
