You’re probably wondering about the details of meals, rooms, hiking, weather, Internet access, mobile phone reception, and all the rest. Look no further. This page is where you’ll find details about life at Camp. If there’s something you need to know, and you can’t find it here, you can ask le****@co*************.org.

Hill House bedroomRooms

All guest rooms have private baths, color TV, and free Wi-Fi Internet access. Have a look. If you call by phone, just tell them you are with the Consultant’s Camp group.

In addition to the rooms, we have reserved the three bedroom cabin, Hill House, for the lunch/pizza venue. 

Call the Lodge for information at 831-659-2233 or visit their website.

Here’s a map showing the location of Los Laureles Lodge, where next Consultants’ Camp will meet.


Breakfast is served in the restaurant. Your camp fee pays for the catered breakfast. There are three special dinners, described below, and which are hosted by Camp.

For lunch, we’re on our own, but there is an informal “lunch club” staffed by volunteer Campers who stock the kitchen in the Hill House with cold lunch items and snacks. Participation is voluntary and typically costs $40 for the week.  The Lodge Restaurant 

Other meals are not included, but there is a full kitchen at our disposal for Campers to use at their leisure. And some of us will be exploring nearby restaurants. Here are some restaurants on a list from TripAdvisor for Carmel Valley, California.   

Special dinners

The three special dinners are the Welcoming Dinner (Sunday), Pizza night (Tuesday), and the Celebration Dinner (Friday).

The Welcoming Dinner is on the evening of the day we all arrive at Camp. Pizza Night is no ordinary order-in affair. It’s a festive design-your-own pizza celebration, in which Campers volunteer as pizza chefs to produce novel masterpieces unavailable anywhere else.

The Celebration Dinner is usually a conventional barbecue, but special dietary requirements will be accommodated to the best of our ability.

Special dietary requirements

If you have any dietary restrictions, such as vegetarian, gluten-free, or low-acid, contact this year’s social director, Corinna Martinez, with details. The kitchen is not certified Kosher.


The Lodge has an outdoor pool and is close to many beautiful places to explore. The nearby Garland Ranch Regional Park has lovely hiking trails and groves of redwood trees. Monterey has a lot to offer; the famous aquarium, restaurants, shopping. Big Sur and Point Lobos are also within easy driving distance.     

This page on the Lodge website has connections to recreation and events.

What to wear

Comfortable, casual clothes—jeans, shorts, T- shirts, and a sweatshirt or light jacket. There’s a swimming pool so bring swimwear. It is usually comfortably warm during the day and a bit chilly at night. Rain is unlikely, but a poncho or rain jacket is a good idea. Don’t forget sunscreen!


Internet access

Free wireless Internet connections are available throughout the property.
