Welcome to a summer of exploration and fun in the outdoors!
Become an "explorer" this summer and join us on San Domenico School's stunning 500-plus acre campus for an unforgettable camp experience! Together we will explore the trails and our magical one-acre garden through nature arts & crafts, cooking from the garden, camp songs & skits, team building, field games, swimming and more! Wednesdays are special field trip days to explore some of our local natural treasures in Marin.
"In the misty Hills of San Anselmo
We gathered under the waving trees
Anxious of the days to follow
Spent with new friends and the garden bees" - Explorers Camp Musings, a poem by Elspeth Mathau.
We believe that by immersing children in a rich outdoor environment with dynamic and highly trained staff, your child will build self- confidence and develop an appreciation and love of nature. Explorers’ camp fosters a fun, friendly and nurturing environment for kids to explore their interests, challenge themselves and make lasting friendships.
Explorers Camp is offered to first through fifth grade students. Campers are grouped by age and rotate through activities throughout the day finishing with a refreshing dip in the swimming pool. Camp T-shirts and snacks provided.
