About Caldera

Caldera is a catalyst for the transformation of underserved youth through innovative year-round art and environmental programs.

We never saw Caldera as a place that creates artists. It is a place that creates community. That inspires confidence. Provides clarity. Caldera is the simple notion that when you show someone the power of their own creativity, it suddenly feels like anything is possible. Whether it's as a camper, a counselor or a resident artist; whether it's through the arts or the environment or the people; Caldera exists as a way to find that creativity, and enable the change it creates.

Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

“I'm most proud of not getting in trouble anymore and of having people respect me.”
