Camp Via West
This year we held our annual Athlete Leadership Summit at Camp Via West, and we are so glad that we did! At Camp Via West you can enjoy a serene and natural setting while being only minutes away from Silicon Valley. We were especially pleased with the brand new sports field where our athletes were able to engage in all their favorite activities.

Our time with Camp Via West has been nothing short of phenomenal. Our cyclists had a great time, and the staff went above and beyond. We can’t wait to come back next year!

We had an absolutely wonderful time, thank you so much for everything the Camp Via West team did to make this experience possible for our volunteers and their families! Our organizing team and our guests had a terrific time, and we hope to be able to host our conference again at Camp Via West in a future year! Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything you and the Via Services team did to make our event a beautiful, memorable experience.

Via West offers universal design, not just accessible rooms and bathrooms. It is easy to push a stroller up to the Sports Field while having a child with autism safely walk next to the caregiver. A quiet retreat for the sensory overloaded person…

Via West Campus is a treasure. The talented and friendly kitchen staff, the unsung heroes of our stay at Via West, are a joy to work with. Every tasty meal — from Taco Night to our Pasta Dinner—was made with high quality ingredients and sprinkled with a dash of happiness and a heap of delicious memories! The incredible new multisport field at Camp Via West was the center of activity for our retreat, hosting everything from field day races to dark sky stargazing to quiet moments shared between friends, new and old.

This was our first time at Camp Via West, and it was by far the best experience from start to finish that I have ever experienced. Every staff member that I encountered at Camp Via West was polite, and professional and went out of their way to be accommodating. Can’t wait to come back for our next retreat!

Chef Jen was awesome and incredibly accommodating. People were amazed with the food as well. We only wished we had more. Literally, compliments to the chef.
