Even though Christmas was only a few weeks ago, it's already time to start thinking about summer camp! Believe it or not, summer camp sign-ups will be starting soon, and many of the popular camps in Marin and the Bay Area fill up quickly.
Find the the ideal camp for your children in the 2013 edition of our Marin Summer Camp Guide. Our Marin Summer Camp Guide is a comprehensive directory of summer camps in Marin County, with selected Sonoma County and San Francisco camps included, too.
Browse camps by location, age level, and camp activities. You can also rate your favorite camps and share your experiences with other local parents.
If you run or represent a summer camp and wish to update your camp's information or add a new camp to the guide, submit the new or updated info in a listing here. We welcome listings for camps within Marin County, Sonoma County, and San Francisco, but if you have a camp located outside the area that would be of interest to local families, feel free to submit the information and we'll consider adding it to the guide.
Happy April! We're busy finishing up a major software upgrade for Marin Mommies, and some parts are still a work in progress—notably the calendar. We should have any outstanding issues resolved soon. Thanks for you patience!
