The 2017 edition of our annual Marin Summer Camp Guide is coming soon! Marin Mommies' Marin Summer Camp Guide is a comprehensive directory of summer camps in Marin County, with select camps from elsewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California, including Sonoma County, San Francisco, the East Bay, and the Peninsula.

If you run or represent a summer camp and wish to update your camp's information or add a new camp to the guide, submit the new or updated info in a listing here. We welcome listings for camps within Marin County and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, but if you have an awesome summer camp located outside the area that would be of interest to Marin and Bay Area families, feel free to submit the information and we'll consider adding it to the guide. (Note that all summer camp submissions are subject to administrator approval before they go live, and out-of-area camps will be included at the editors' discretion.)
