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 12th year, so special!

Unique camps are offered for various age groups. For younger children, we offer Watershed Warriors (grades K-2), a nature program full of exploring, games, art, storytelling, and more.  This is age-appropriate, fun, timeless, slow play, and safe exploration. We’ll use all of our senses and learn to relate to each other. 

Campers entering Grades 2-5 should not miss StoryPlay, where we use timeless children’s books like Roxaboxen and Island of the Blue Dolphins to inspire us to create communities of play and discovery.  
Our Dog Days camp is one of a kind, where kids (Grades 3-8) bring their dogs to camp and learn from Marin’s best dog trainers and walkers and other experts how to ethically interact with neighbors on our local trails along with coyote awareness. Campers aren’t required to bring a dog as we share the dogs who come to camp after they pass a basic screening.

For older campers, Rock Beyond (grades 6-12) is our overnight outdoor rock climbing camp, which takes campers to the best climbing destinations near Tahoe. 

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 K-12.  $275-$1895.  Half day, full day and overnight options. Free before and aftercare. $25/week discount - use code MARINMOMMIES.
