Camp Supernova is located at Green Mountain Retreat, nestled on 66+ acres, in the lush redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The Camp is set just off Highway 17, near Bear Creek Redwoods Open Preserve and Lexington Reservoir on Bear Creek Road. It is just a short drive from the heart of Silicon Valley, San Jose, and downtown Los Gatos.


Part of the fun of going away at an overnight camp is getting to meet new people with similar interests, hang out, and develop lasting friendships. Camp Supernova offers campers cozy rooms in our distinctively southwestern designed historic Pueblo Lodge. Campers of similar ages and gender will be paired up to share a room. Bed linens, pillow, and towels are provided for each camper. Please notify the staff on your registration form if your child needs special accommodations. During their stay, campers are organized in age-specific teams where they will meet new friends and engage in fun activities. Each group is assigned a Nova Leader to act as a role model and mentor to ensure that they can resolve any problems and ensure that campers have tons of fun.


Our delicious and nutritious kid-friendly menu is served in our Welcome Center Dining Hall. Meals are served buffet style and offer a variety of tasty options for all campers dietary needs, including vegetarian. Please remember to complete the Dietary Restriction – Food Allergy Form if your child has any food allergies or other food related needs.
