Marin Ranch Camp is Marin County's overnight adventure summer camp. We offer a fun and engaging overnight (sleep-away) summer camp program where any kids ages 7 - 17 (LIT for 9th - 12th graders) can hike, swim, boat, explore and play. A place where children can be themselves while participating in traditional, good old-fashioned summer camp activities in an intentional community of caring people.
We recognize the importance of providing children with a space where they can get away from the pressures of everyday life and experience freedom from stress and over-scheduling. With our technological society, it is important to engage with nature, and Marin Ranch Camp has limitless opportunities thanks to our location in beautiful West Marin at Walker Creek Ranch Outdoor Education Center.
While we do all the fun traditional camp activities like canoeing, archery and a ropes course, it goes much deeper than that. Our caring and thoughtful team helps each child have the best possible experience by acknowledging them as an individual with their own strengths, challenges, fears and passions. Campers are provided a space where they feel safe to step a bit outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves by experiencing new adventures.
This is captured in our guiding principles, that we call the F.A.C.T.S.: Friendship, Adventure, Community, Tradition & Safety.
Friendship is built naturally in our small cabin groups, where the day's experiences bring the group closer together. Adventure happens around every bend at the lake, creek, and organic garden, with the farm animals, and while exploring the hiking trails spanning over 1,700 acres. The camp Community is built intentionally through thoughtful activities that welcome campers to be a part of the Tradition that Marin Ranch Camp and sleep-away camps offer. Above all, our guiding principle is Safety. It’s the first and last thing on our minds at all times, in everything that we do.
We believe in the power of our summer camp
We hold a deep understanding of the incredible transformation that occurs when kids attend our residential camp. We support them as they learn and grow in a new and encouraging environment, away from the familiar surroundings of home and family, and we welcome them into our loving community where it is safe be yourself.
