Who We Are
Our camps reflect our school-wide commitment to seeing and nurturing the individual child.
Our program has always been special. That's why our campers love us, and often return year after year. During the COVID pandemic, we leveled up to provide safety, community, and a "yes" space for children who need these things now more than ever. As things evolve and protocols change, we are still dedicated to providing the safest environment possible for your child.
Our outstanding team of highly experienced and capable in Earth, Spanish, and Mandarin Educators consistently deliver exceptional learning experiences. Many of our counselors join us each and every year to help create an unparalleled experience for your children. Your child is in exceptional hands.
Refund Policy: Canceling registrations more than 14 days before the camp start date incurs a $50 administrative fee; canceling within 14 days forfeits any refund, unless it is COVID-related. If camp is cancelled due to COVID the unattended days will be refunded. Please contact email@example.com; refunds are determined on a case by case basis.

My daughter had the time of her life, hiking the trails of Marin, playing games, and making friends. She came home every day, dirty, tired, and brimming with stories of her adventures...exactly what summer should be for a kid. - Heidi S. Mother of 7 year old daughter.
My kindergartner was lucky enough to participate in Terra Marin's spring break camp and we could not be happier with the experience! Super safe and professional staff, trained teachers and naturalists from their regular outdoor teaching staff, and dedicated, bright junior counselors supporting their efforts. - Anne H., parent of 5 year old daugher.
