Muir Wood has four boys’ residential campuses in idyllic Sonoma County, California. Just 30 miles north of San Francisco, Sonoma County is known for its rolling hills, rugged coastline, 50 regional parks, and small-town charm. The four boys’ campuses encompass over twenty-two acres, allowing ample space for individual and group therapy, on-site, accredited schooling, and outdoor spaces. The campus includes soccer fields, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and the Jennifer Golick Family Learning Center used for music therapy, yoga, meditation, and other experiential therapies. Parents and referents often comment on these incredible settings.
A significant amount of thought goes into our campus settings. For many of our clients, this may be their first exposure to treatment. For some, their first time away from home. When these boys and girls come to Muir Wood and walk through the doors of our beautiful, homelike campuses, these settings help them to initially engage in treatment and the process of healing.”Scott Sowle, Founder, Muir Wood
Skillman North Campus
Skillman North is the original Muir Wood campus, established in 2012. The private, six-acre property includes a beautifully renovated turn of the century farmhouse that is the primary boys’ residence, a renovated water tower that now houses offices, Therapy Row (six offices for the clinical team members), and a renovated barn that houses the program’s staff offices.
Skillman South Campus
Constructed in 2018, Skillman South occupies the six acres adjacent to Skillman North, affording views of farmland and rolling Sonoma countryside. It features a lighted basketball court, large pond, soccer field, volleyball court, the Jennifer Golick Family Learning Center, and the Muir Wood Learning Center. Skillman South is an incredible setting for boys to heal.
Situated on seven acres at Sonoma Mountain’s base, Penngrove boasts absolute privacy and beautiful, sweeping views of Sonoma countryside. This working farm setting features dozens of towering eucalyptus and fruit trees, walking paths, and a large Yurt used for group sessions, meditation, yoga, reiki, and music therapy.
Deer Hill Campus
Deer Hill is a six-acre campus so named for the deer that roam its grounds at dusk. The Deer Hill residence is a newly renovated farmhouse offering privacy and remoteness. Boys often ask to reside at Deer Hill because of its two large decks overlooking the back hill where the deer wander in the early evening.
