Specialty Day Camps

Specialty Day Camps

Welcome to Marinwood’s Specialty Camps!

Campers can explore their passion this summer with one of Marinwood’s many specialty camps. Choose from a variety of specialty camps, from the arts and sciences to sports! This year, we have expanded our specialty camps to offer more full day options.

Don’t forget about the Counselor in Training or Guards in Training program for those entering eighth grade who want a taste of what it’s like to be lifeguard or camp counselor. This is a great opportunity for those who may one day want to work at Marinwood!

Did you know you can attend one of Marinwood’s traditional day camps after the half day specialty camp ends?

Campers of specialty camps located at Miller Creek School have the opportunity to continue the fun by joining one of Marinwood’s Explorer or Adventurer camps after their camp ends at noon. For more information or to register for this 12-3pm option, please contact the Marinwood Recreation Department office.

Do you offer After Care for specialty camps?

We offer After Care for Camp Compass, Quest, and Ivy! We do not offer After Care if the camp ends before 2:30pm. If you require a full day camp or After Care, consider registering the second half of the day in one of Marinwood’s traditional day camps for half that camp’s session fee. Register through the Marinwood front office for this option.
