Camp fairs are a wonderful way to get a lot of local camp information in one place. The camp directors and staff are there to answer questions in person and you are likely to get a better sense of the camp philosophy by talking to them directly rather than just poking around their website.
Here are a couple upcoming camp fairs in the SF area:
Marin Camp Fair – Friday, March 30 – 4:30 to 6:45
Meet the people behind most of the top summer day camps in Marin County and hear about their great camp programs. In addition, several of the most popular residential (sleep-away) camps will also be on hand to showcase their offerings. The Marin Camp Fair is a community event managed by the Dominican University Athletic Department as a service to Marin County families and camps.
Date & Time:
Friday, March 30, 2012 from 4:30pm – 6:45pm (pizza dinner!) (exact time TBD)
Dominican University of California, Conlan Center gymnasium (1475 Grand Ave San Rafael, CA 94901)
