A Pirate's Life for Us!


Welcome to the Pirates of the Golden Gate, where we celebrate the pirate way of life through an epic role-playing adventure of pirate skills and quests. Our crew is composed of the scurviest sea dogs around, and we’re seeking only the most fearsome scallywags to join us.

Campers become the scourge of the Sea of the Golden Gate and the Lakes Beyond. Hear true and imaginary tales and sing shanties of pirate crews long past as we develop our characters and participate in friendly skullduggery and treasure hunting quests.


The Quest of the Mariners

Crewmembers must master a variety of pirate skills. Campers may learn how to survive a desert island shipwreck, train in swashbuckling foam sword hand to hand combat, navigate using map and compass, or perfect their rope and knot-craft as they lash down their cargo.

Finally, our Mariners Pirate Quest follows an ancient map drawn by the first Mediterranean pirate, Captain Five Blades. Her crew is still rumored to roam the Sea of the Golden Gate, driven mad by her thirst for glory and pirate justice. Our crew's job is to race her to the treasure, solving riddles and defeating traps laid along the way.

All this and more as we don our pirate hooks, eyepatches, wooden legs and garrrrrrb!

Our Philosophy for Learning & Living

A Smile

We help children to feel like that group of kids wandering country backyards 50 years ago: independent, tired, muddy, wet and happy from the woods and wild. We are acutely aware of full and real hazards of the out of doors after years of working in environmental education. We try to move away from the highly structured and limiting tolerances of conventional environmental education while keeping kids truly safe but not encapsulated from, or phobic of nature. We are deep patriots to the value of offering guided yet very free and transparent experiences for kids. We believe it is okay to be thirsty at times, cold at times, and wet at times. It builds empathy and care for the gifts of life. It fosters adventure and sincere accomplishment. We also believe it is critical to feel supported and cared for as they truly explore their passion and responsibility. And through a healthy life immersed in nature, they test the limits and great potential of the often untapped physical and emotional resiliency they possess
