Experience the Wonder of Nature

Y Rangers campers will put down their devices and marvel at the magic of nature as they explore the wonders of the outdoors in their local National Park - the Presidio and Marin Headlands.

Campers will spend their summer in nature connecting with their peers and taking part in recreational and educational activities with the Y's outdoor educators and youth development staff.

  • Youth must register for three-week sessions of camp (one-week options are not available).
