Summer Adventure Camps 2017

All camps occur in July.

Adventure Camps are designed to empower youth to explore the boundaries of their comfort zone in safe, fun ways! We’ve created opportunities for adults, youth and families to form positive connections while exploring all that Marin has to offer.

Trips are led by professional guides and SGVCC staff.

Please join us this summer!
