My Story

Elaine Taylor is Co-Founder and President of the Taylor Family Foundation, which operates Camp Arroyo in Livermore. Each year, the camp offers a back-to-nature summer camp for nearly 3,000 children with life-threatening conditions, as well as at-risk youth and youth coping with bereavement. But Elaine's work is about more than creating opportunities for life-transforming experiences in nature. She also has led efforts to make Camp Arroyo the greenest, most eco-friendly operation of its kind. Its cutting-edge operations make Camp Arroyo the ideal venue for thousands of students from around the Bay Area who go there during the school year to learn how to live sustainably.
