Bolinas Stinson Summer Camp
The goal of the camp is to provide all local West Marin children with equal access to memorable summer camp experiences. Although camp fees are kept to a third the cost of similar camps, many area families are unable to pay even part. Therefore, tuition assistance is offered to all qualified families who wish to attend. Each day, kids participate in many activities including learning indigenous skills, games and sports, canoeing and kayaking; bike-riding and hiking in state and national parks; art; marine science and other nature studies; swimming and games on the beach; theater; dance and aerial arts; organic farming and natural food preparation; and camping and backpacking. The Rex grant provides funding for The Music Project for the Bolinas Stinson Summer Camp to provide additional activities in the form of music education for the campers, with emphasis on building community through music, especially through the rhythms of drumming.
