Event description

Description

Bay Camp is a bilingual summer day camp on San Pablo Bay for children ages 7 to 12, connecting them to the tidal marsh ecosystem through exploration of the environment, learning about and experiencing the ecology of this vital habitat. Bay Camp offers children the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature through exploration, hands-on activities and recreation along the tidal marsh.

At Bay Camp, children see new sights and experience the places where fresh and salt water meet, while making new friends and having fun along the way. A supportive and kind community is created by the staff and campers through team-building games and activities. Get children into the outdoors and spend a week enjoying new and exciting adventures at Bay Camp!

All kayaks, bicycles and safety gear are provided for campers. Water safety, kayaking techniques and bicycling are taught during camp. Camp headquarters is at the Ralph Benson Center at the Baylands on the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

Each week of camp runs Monday through Friday from 9am–3pm. Limited transportation is offered from the Springs area of Sonoma. For more information, contact BayCamp@sonomalandtrust.org.
