Our 7-11-year-olds program will rotate on a bi-monthly basis through locations in Marin County such as China Camp, Roy’s Redwoods, Lake Lagunitas, and Miwok Park.

Most gatherings will take place at 10:30 am – 12:30 pm, with select afternoon/evening programs throughout, capitalizing on the seasonal changes.

Our registration fee reflects what it takes to run our programs. This includes funding for our incredible team of educators, the beautiful sites that we use, supplies and materials, and all the staff time it takes for our programs to run smoothly.

Registration Fee: $360

Makor Marin is a nontraditional, radically inclusive Jewish community for people of all backgrounds. We’re all about creative community and Jewish learning opportunities outside the walls of a building – in the redwoods, overlooking the Bay, hiking, camping, volunteering with trail maintenance, and so much more.

Makor Marin is an outdoor project of Congregation Rodef Sholom.
