ROCK & RIDE™ & ROCK FIVE™
The Best Guided Outdoor Rock Climbing Experiences Designed Especially for Marin and San Francisco Kids.
Marin GreenPlay offers the only weeklong outdoor climbing experiences for kids from Marin and San Francisco. Our professionally-guided rock climbing trips have been incredibly popular since we started offering them in 2012. AMGA certified climbing instructors will show campers proper safety techniques and proper wear and care of climbing gear, knot tying, buddy check, climbing up, lowering, commands, rappelling, bouldering, belaying, and more. We provide all of the necessary equipment.
ROCK & RIDE™
This program gives new and experienced climbers three full fun days of climbing under the supervision and instruction of AMGA certified Single Pitch Instructors at Ring Mountain, Mickey's Beach and Sunset Boulders. Kids entering Grades 3-5 climb Mondays and Wednesdays and teens (Grades 6-8) climb Tuesdays and Thursdays in groups of no more than 10 climbers so they can get in enough climbs. On Fridays the two groups merge to show off the skills learned this week. Alternate days are spent bodyboarding with our RIDE FIVE™ group at Muir Beach or Stinson Beach. $495/wk June 11-August 24 (no camp the week of July 2)
Experienced climbers get a full five days of learning advanced climbing skills from AMGA certified Single Pitch Instructors in the Berkeley Hills, Mickey's Beach, Sunset Boulders & Castle Rock, the Bay Area's most challenging climbing areas. This is a mixed age group of no more than 10 excellent climbers aged 8-13. $595/wk June 11-August 24 (no camp the week of July 2)
