Marin GreenPlay Camp

Marin GreenPlay Camp, voted Best Summer Camp in 2017 and 2018 by Marin IJ Readers, is an innovative and place-based nature awareness camp for kids in preschool through 12th grade. Find out what makes Marin GreenPlay, now in its 11th year, so special!

Unique camps are offered for various age groups. For our youngest campers, Play by the Bay (ages 3-5) in Tiburon brings age-appropriate, fun, timeless, slow play, and safe exploration. We’ll use all of our senses, gain words, and learn to relate to each other. For younger children, we offer Watershed Warriors (grades K-2), a nature program full of exploring, games, art, storytelling, and more, including a not-to-be-missed week at Green Gulch Farm.

We also offer mobile camps. Rock Five Level 1, Rock Five Advanced, and Rock Beyond (grades 3-12) are our multilevel, state-the-art day and overnight outdoor rock climbing camps, the only camps of their kind in this area, which take the kids to the best climbing destinations in the Bay Area and to the Sierraa Nevada. Ocean Explorers (grades 3-8) gets the kids out paddleboarding, kayaking and boogie boarding, as well as learning marine science in the tidepools. Free transportation to Marin from San Francisco is offered for these programs.

Teens can also participate in our afterschool Youth Leaders Program training course held each May, which provides them with naturalist and leadership skills and invites them to help out at camp year after year through high school.


For kids grades PK-12.  $275-$1595.  Half day, full day and overnight options. Free before and aftercare. $25/week discount - use code MARINMOMMIES.
