30th Anniversary of Adventure Camp & Top Gun
Fall Registration Coming Soon!
Soccer Registration Open NOW
Marin Explorers is a hands-on excursion camp where children learn by exploring the Bay Area's "out-of-the-way" places. Here is a camp where your child sees first-hand what it's like to milk a cow in Point Reyes or make chocolate bars at a Berkeley chocolate factory. Your child will be in the expert hands of Holly Salamun and Marty Ross, who are thrilled to be offering this unique camp experience!
Providing a great transition from preschool to Kindergarten is our goal, Audrey Hildebrand and Jane Sears will be the ones to make this camp so special!
Every week camp will have a new theme to stimulate imaginations. We'll dream up projects and activities including scavenger hunts, obstacle courses, moovin' n groovin', yoga, listening skills, and projects galore, your child will learn skills needed in kindergarten all while having the time of their lives. Every week we will have a "Special Guest' to entertain them, musicians, animals, puppets, and a magician are just a few.
Celebrate our 30th year of awesome adventures! Everyday you, your friends and the counselors will experience a new adventure creating memories that will last a lifetime!
Camp is lead by Jean Marc Schafer, Bacich School's amazing P.E. teacher, now in his 30th year with us. Marin's best, most fun and highly experienced camp leaders - our fabulous and enthusiastic staff, Jeff, Sandrick, Jenny and Zack keep coming back (and they want you to also!)

Thank you for another wonderful fun filled summer.
We hope everyone had a great time.
We have a few items that were left behind at camp and we would love to see them find their homes. If you are missing a sweatshirt, jacket, water bottle, lunch bag, baseball glove or bat, PLEASE contact the Ross Recreation Office to claim your item.

If you can't decide which sport you like the most, this is the camp for you.

You'll also learn new skills and develop your old ones to enhance your playing ability.

Leopard sharks, bat rays, pipefish and more are seen and their life histories explained as we learn more about our connection to the waters of Tomales Bay.

Kids Club is a safe, reliable and affordable after school program at Ross School that provides a fun and warm environment for kids to learn and play and grow while developing their social skills and building relationships with others.
Ross Recreation offers Junior Tennis for kids between the ages of 5-14. Tennis in Marin coaches in conjunction with the USTA have now been using modified tennis balls, court sizes, and smaller rackets with great success. These new changes have allowed kids to rally and play real tennis points at an early age. They have set up a system where different colored balls are used at corre- sponding age levels to allow more of a natural progression toward learning the sport of tennis. When kids are successful they are having fun, and when they are having fun, they are usually suc- cessful. It works both ways.
Creative classes of all types: sewing, wheel throwing & more.
Jean Marc Shafer's soccer sells out every year so sign up now. This instructional program emphasizes the basic skills in passing, dribbling, shooting, trapping, heading, and tactics for both offensive and defensive play.
