Vilda Summer Camp

Vilda’s beloved nature day camps are an organic, all natural, local, free range, 100% awesome summer experience in the hills, lakes and bays of Marin and at a 250-acre organic farm in Petaluma. With wilderness skills, nature connection and ecological stewardship wrapped in lots of adventure and play, campers learn about animal tracking, wild edible plants, primitive skills, natural dyes and much, much more. Vilda offers programs in Fairfax, San Rafael, Petaluma and Point Reyes for ages 4-13. Their San Rafael camps additionally include swimming and kayaking or hands on skills such as carpentry and ecological crafts, and their Petaluma camps include organic farming and tending baby farm animals.

Founded in 2008, Vilda is a Marin based non-profit with the mission of facilitating meaningful connection to the natural world. Vilda’s highly trained adult instructors provide kids with a caring individualistic experience at a 1:6 instructor to camper ratio or better.
