Read what our campers say:*

“The staff here is great. I’ve been to other camps, and the staff at those camps treated us like three-year-olds. At Marin Sierra, we’re treated like we’re human beings.”

"Best merit badge counselors I've seen in any camp I've been to"

"I wanted to compliment you on the quality of the staff and program that is happening at Camp Marin Sierra this year. From the time we pulled up to the time we left, virtually ever staff member I met was friendly, courteous, helpful, and well informed."

"This is a great camp, great staff, great food!"

"There was such a pervasive customer service attitude of "YES" in camp. It was awesome!"

"We went to your camp 2 years ago and were very impressed. Last year, we went to another camp, and although it was a great camp, it seemed like the staff were just doing their job. We came to your camp again this year, and we are happy again. Your staff is awesome!

"Excellent leadership team. Many of the staff have exceptional interpersonal skills." 

"Thanks so much for the best summer camp experience in our entire Scouting experience!"

". . . thanks again for a fantastic week. Your staff was exemplary and set a fine example for Scouts and Scouters alike."

"The staff was excellent. We were constantly asked if we needed anything. Our expectations were constantly exceeded."

"Food rocked!"

"We go to different camps every year, and I've been to at least 18 camps. You have the most polite and helpful staff I've ever seen."

"This is a great camp with great staff and management. Thank you!"

"Staff was excellent; made camp fun!"

"I wanted to commend you for running a great summer camp. The camp was very well organized, the staff were friendly, and the food was good."

"Why can't other camps be like you?"

*These comments were just a few of many positive comments from both youth and adults given verbally or taken from evaluations.

It is the second driveway as you head down Highway 20
from Interstate 80.

If you are driving from Grass Valley/Nevada City, it is one of the
last driveways on Highway 20 on the left (about a
mile or two past Lake Spaulding Road).
