Arts & Cultural Classes


When creativity strikes, we’re prepared. An array of artistic hobbies are available to Martis Camp families (kids included) who want to draw, paint, create pottery and pursue other artistic endeavors. The community’s Art Loft includes a kiln, pottery wheel and everything needed to express your creative side.

For those who need a little guidance, The Folk School offers classes by highly qualified instructors in the arts and crafts like woodworking and carving.

"From the design of the community Gatehouse to the Family Barn, Martis Camp is a big family place offering a National Park-like experience. I looked all over the country, coast-to-coast, for the ultimate family community. Martis Camp is exactly what I was looking for. We were looking for a vacation home where everyone in our family could bike, ski and hike."

– Dean, San Francisco

"I thought, ‘No one’s going to be doing this, are we crazy?’ But still it seemed to be the right time to us. We wanted to set up that kind of vacation property where we could enjoy family time. Prices for contractors are lower than a few years ago. It makes things much more doable."

– Scott and Lori, Bay Area

"We have felt for quite some time that Martis Camp was the perfect fit for our family’s Tahoe home. While we were waiting and waiting for the right time to buy, it dawned on us that what we were missing meaningful time with our family. Virtually everything we need for our family to have a great life in Tahoe is in place today at Martis Camp. There was never going to be a better time than now."

– Mike and Joanne, San Jose

"Wow. My wife Jen and I spent our first day as members visiting the Lodge with a couple of friends and what a great experience! Of course the facilities are amazing but the graciousness, service, enthusiasm, sense of humor and pride shown to us by the staff was what left us most impressed and looking forward to coming back. Thanks to Paolo, Steve, Jesse, Matt and everyone else at the Lodge for making our first day very memorable!"

– Peter and Jen, Bay Area
