Marin Mommies presents a sponsored shout-out from Gymworld in San Rafael.
Lourdes Esquivel and Victoria Yelensky founded Gymworld in 1999. They were former National members of the team for their respective countries and wanted to pass on their love for the sport and its benefits to children.
Our brand new, air-conditioned building with state of the art equipment is perfect for kids of all ages. Well trained, safety certified staff will make any child enjoy the sport.
GymWorld summer camps are for kids ages 4 and up. If your child is a recreational beginner, intermediate, or a competing gymnast, GymWorld has the right group at camp for them.
At the end of each two week session there will be a performance where kids will demonstrate a floor routine and be awarded a medal for their efforts!
Aspartame? Vanillin? Ammonium chloride? Shopping for groceries shouldn’t feel like reading a chemistry textbook. And once children enter the picture, the stakes are even higher.
At Whole Foods Market, we stock our shelves with products we buy for our own kids. We carry the widest selection of organic foods of any retailer, but it doesn’t stop there. What goes on your little one’s body is just as important as what goes in it. Looking for diapers? Ours don’t contain synthetic fragrances, inks, or chlorine. We offer lotions, soaps, sunscreen, and baby powder that don’t contain irritating preservatives, artificial colors, or scents.
Wishing you could send your children abroad this summer for a rich cultural experience immersed in the French language? EFBA—French Education in the Bay Area—offers children K–6th grade the opportunity to have a true immersive experience in French through our week-long summer camps staffed by French native speakers.
Linedrive's Baseball and Softball Camps for ages 7–14 feature professional instruction from some of Marin’s very own Local Legends. Campers will rotate through offensive and defensive stations to fine tune skills, and will work drills to improve game IQ. We will end the week with an all-camp scrimmage! If you’ve got a ball player looking for a fun way to improve their skills, look no further! Held at local fields in Tiburon, Larkspur, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Novato.
Our very popular All Sports Camps are back for another summer of week-long fun for kids ages 7–14. We’ll play baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, ping pong, dodge ball, kickball, whiffle ball, bowling, and much, much more! Each week ends with an All Sports Olympics on Friday! Held at our indoor facility in San Rafael.
Steve & Kate's Camp, the local award-winning children’s day camp known for its guiding philosophy of letting kids decide their own activities, is piloting a Spring Break Camp for the first time this April. The camp offers six creative studios: film, coding, music, style, dance, and breadmaking, through which campers have the ability to express themselves freely in a world liberated from adult judgment. “It’s not our job to dictate what the story should be,” Steve Susskind says. “It’s our job to help them tell their stories.”

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from North Bridge Academy which offers a premium education for dyslexic elementary aged students in Larkspur. To learn more, visit the school online at www.northbridgeacademy.org
People with dyslexia flip letters when they read. Wrong! Separating myth from factis one of the first steps parents must do once they learn their child is dyslexic. Learning enough about dyslexia to effectively advocate for your child is critical to obtaining proper educational support and understanding how to set your child up for future success. Dyslexics can be as successful as anyone else. Fact.
Learn about what dyslexia is, how common it is, what neurological research shows about the how dyslexic brains function, how best to educate your child, and how to support their intellectual growth.
In Larkspur on March 5th, there will be two free events that will give you a wealth of information in one day:
Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Avid4 Adventure which offers summer camps for kids K-12th grades in Mill Valley, Oakland, Palo Alto and Saratoga. Learn more at avid4.com.
At Avid4 Adventure, we think it's never too early to introduce kids to the joys of being active outdoors. That's why our Learn to Bike! day camp helps kids age 3.5 and up embrace the fun of self-sufficient cycling.
Designed for first-time riders (or kids using training wheels or balance bikes), our half-day camp groups kids by ability and leads them through a progression of skills—walking their bikes, scooting downhill, coasting with their feet up, touching the pedals and finally pedaling—giving them the skills they need to get comfortable on two wheels. We also make time for games, art and yoga, offering campers opportunities for fun and confidence building both off and on their bikes.
