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 now celebrating its 10th anniversary summer for kids entering kindergarten through 12th grade. Find out what makes Marin GreenPlay so special!

10 unique camps are offered for various age groups.  For younger children, we offer Watershed Warriors (grades K-2), our entry-level nature program full of exploring, games, art, storytelling, and more, including a not-to-be-missed week at Green Gulch Farm, and StoryPlay (grades 2-4), which offers imaginative play in nature based on favorite children’s books.  Older children (grades 3 and up) will delight in Dog Days, a camp for kids and their dogs teaching kids how to walk their dogs on the trails and much more, Nature Makers, which offers nature-inspired jewelry and craft-making, and Summer Beats, offering nature-inspired digital music composition.  

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 beyond.  Ocean Explorers (grades 3-8) gets the kids out paddleboarding, kayaking and boogie boarding, as well as learning marine science in the tidepools, while Marin Treasure Hunt (grades 3-8) teaches wayfinding and orienteering through the engaging activity of geocaching while biking beautiful Angel Island.  Most mobile camps leave from and return to Mill Valley Middle School.

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.
