Our Summer Sea Camp is the core of our youth program, with two 2-week sessions each summer.

A hands-on summer camp, based at the historic Spaulding Marine Center in Sausalito, where your child (ages 11-15) will safely have fun and meet friends while learning big concepts empirically by sailing on the Bay, building wooden watercraft, and participating in watershed restoration.
