Slide Ranch Summer Camps are an exciting way to light up any young person’s summer. Our camps provide unique, hands-dirty opportunities for learning, growth, and fun - all at our working ranch on the stunning Marin County coast. Campers spend their week immersed in the natural world, becoming stewards of the environment. Each camp week is loaded with creative, enriching activities led by skilled environmental educators. Campers milk our goats, care for our chickens, hike our wild lands, explore tide pools, get crafty with wool and nature, tend and harvest our organic garden, make farm fresh food, learn about plant and animal ecosystems, and more.

This engaging experience will spark a life-long appreciation of the outdoors in your child, and help them explore how people and the environment are all connected.

In 2019 we will host 10 weeks of Summer Camps, each targeting specialized age groups:

  • Slide Explorers (ages 5-8) - June 17 & July 22, 9am-2pm

  • Junior Farmers (ages 8-13) - June 24 & July 29, 9am-3pm

What Does Your Child Do at Slide Ranch Summer Camp?

Slide Ranch emphasizes hands-on experience and exploration of our working farm and surrounding countryside. Campers are encouraged to touch, taste, smell, hear, observe, and ask questions. We focus on teaching respect for animals, plants, the earth and each other. Slide Ranch campers milk goats, collect eggs from chickens and ducks, card and spin wool, create nature-based crafts, learn to compost, plant seeds, harvest and cook from our organic garden, and explore the tide pools and trails of our beautiful coastal lands.

Slide Ranch Teachers-in-Residence, lead small, age-based groups of about 8-10 campers, tailoring the activities and focus to the interests, age, and needs of the campers in each group.

In our Junior Environmental Educators program, teens each join a summer camp group and support their Slide Ranch teacher-mentor to facilitate a fun and engaging week of camp. This program empowers teens with skills and experience to become future youth leaders and outdoor educators, earning a certificate of completion. Each afternoon, JEEs will join with their peer cohort for team building, nature craft and garden cooking activities and youth leadership training.

Slide Explorer, Ranch Ranger and Junior Environmental Educator programs begin at 9am and end at 2pm.

Aftercare is available for all campers Monday through Thursday in 1-hour increments until 5:00pm for an additional fee. Campers bring their own bagged lunch each day, and receive a Slide Ranch t-shirt. On Friday we invite families to join the end-of-camp festivities (starting at 12:30), meet other families and learn more about Slide Ranch. Campers will host a Farmer's Market, sharing their group's creations. If you are unable to attend, please make sure that your child is picked up by camp end at 2pm.
