Marin Sierra FAMILY Vacation Camp

Parents, would you like to experience all the fun and adventure your Scouts are having at our beautiful camp property? Well, now you'll have the opportunity to share some quality time together as a family with all the outdoor traditions of Scout Camp! While celebrating our CoViD-delayed 71st Summer at Marin Sierra, we are introducing a brand-new family vacation camp program with two- or three-night stays during the week of Sunday, August 1 through Saturday, August 7, 2021. Only one person per extended family group needs to be registered in Marin Scouting!

Imagine packing for your family camping vacation, but not having to worry about setting up a tent, or cooking your food, or planning the activities! For one low price per person, you will be able to register your family members, friends and relatives for a couple days alongside crystal-clear Chubb Lake, amid the pine and cedar forest, breathing in the fresh mountain air, and gazing at the amazing night skies. Meanwhile, our camp staff takes care of all the basic necessities such as tent shelter, three meals a day, and all the classic program activities including our fabulous waterfront for swimming and boating, challenging shooting sports, fun handicrafts, exciting outdoor skills, beautiful nature walks and more!

We look forward to welcoming your family to Marin Sierra in August for a one-of-a-kind vacation with adventure for all ages!  So gather up your entire crew --- children, grandparents, cousins, and friends --- and experience the great outdoors in scenic Emigrant Gap.  The best part?  It's your vacation on your terms, keeping you connected to what matters most: being outdoors in nature together!  So come up for just a few days, and make memories that will last a lifetime!
