Named after Maacama Creek which runs through the property, our 11-acre rural campus is located 90 miles north of San Francisco in the heart of Sonoma County wine country. Maacama is where all LEAPYEAR and LEAPYEAR2 retreats are held throughout the year.



The Maacama campus comfortably accommodates 38 students and 10 staff in 16 buildings - with a total of 16,000 square feet of bunkhouses, studios/classrooms, a large teaching kitchen, office spaces and staff housing. LEAPNOW has been at Maacama since 2002. Every building on the land has been improved and uplifted by the efforts of the past 21 LEAPYEAR groups, LEAPNOW interns, and LEAPYEAR2 students.

Though the feeling here is rural and quiet, Maacama is 20 minutes from the Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa, and 2 hours from the international airports in San Francisco, Oakland and Sacramento.
