Are you a girl who loves …
to follow rocks down a stream, connect with the plants and the animals, make crafts and herbal medicine, to connect with a kind and courageous group of girls?
Are you a mom or female caregiver who wants…
to be part of a supportive female community as your daughter grows from girl to teenager to woman, and cultivate a deeper connection with her in the process … plus loves everything above?
Come be a part of a thriving village …
Give yourself and your daughter the gift of being supported in the important transition from her childhood into her teenage years by a healthy and inspiring female, nature-based village.

“This camp and Gaia Girls Passages has strengthened my bond with my daughter by plugging her into the energy of her source and the knowledge of who she is, as a girl emerging into a woman and as a human being.” ~ Amy, mother of Skye Manley

Our Beautiful Location!
We will be gathering at the beautiful Camp Tamarancho in Fairfax, Marin County. This year-round camp has over 480 acres of meadows, redwood- and oak-forested campsites, a lake for swimming and boating, extensive trails and places to explore, and several rustic cabins for mothers if desired. And, the cherry on top is that it is conveniently located for people who live in the San Francisco Bay area as it is just two miles from Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Marin County!
Campgrounds: There will be two camps within our larger village.
Wildflowers Front Country Camp: Our girls entering grades 4-5 and 6-7 will be in two separate groups in a special camp lined with oak and redwoods close to the lake and center camp.
Wildcat Back Country Camp: Our older girls entering grades 8-10 will reside in a beautiful campground, further from central camp. They will be part of the bigger village, but will sleep under the stars with each other in their own mini village and be taken on some special, age appropriate adventures.
Accommodations: There is potable water at all campsites and in our kitchen. All meals will be provided with organic ingredients and local when possible. Diet accommodates omnivores, vegetarians, and those with allergies of any kind. Pit toilets and flushing toilets are available on the ground as well as limited shower use.
Mother or Female Caregiver’s Attendance
We highly recommend that mother or female caregiver join us from Friday through Sunday.
If there is an extenuating circumstance that prevents you from coming for Friday through Sunday, then we ask mother or a caregiver to be there on Sunday from 10am-2pm.
If mother or female caregiver has a younger sibling (boy or girl) who is nursing or under 2, she is welcome to bring along.
