Camp Staff Application --- we are now accepting applications for Summer Camp 2021.

Read what our Campers have to say:*


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

“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.”

"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."

"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."

"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!

"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."



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

"The Food ROCKED!"

"Staff was excellent; made camp fun!"

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

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

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

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

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