Facility Overview

  • The Lutt Family Amphitheater: The pride and joy of Cazadero Music Camp is named after the founders of Cazadero Music Camp, Bob and Beth Lutt and their family. With a new and dramatic roof constructed in 2009, the amphitheater is a great venue for concerts, rehearsals, theater or even a wedding.
  • The Rehearsal Deck: The rehearsal deck in the Family Grove area of the camp is a great location for rehearsals, dancing, receptions, weddings or just plain hanging out.
  • The Caz Lodge and Deck: The Lodge can serve a variety of functions for your group. It can accommodate a small program, be the focal point of your group event and is great for evening activities. The Deck along the back of The Lodge overlooks Austin Creek and is a great place to eat meals, meet, rehearse or sit back and relax to the sounds of the creek below.
  • The Dining Hall: Typical camp food this is not! Enjoy the comforts of being away from home with three delicious and nutritious meals a day. With a capacity of 250 per seating, the dining hall is a focal point for meals, programs, meetings or evening activities. Head Chef Anita Mazzaferro will work with your group to provide excellent food with great service to you and your group.
