Camp Mendocino is an outdoor education and environmental awareness program focused entirely on the character and leadership development of kids from disadvantaged circumstances. For over 80 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco has been providing this creative, fun and supportive camping experience for youth ages eight to 18.
Located in a 2,000-acre beautiful redwood forest three and half hours north of San Francisco, Camp Mendocino offers programs that are clearly unique to those offered at our nine Clubhouses in San Francisco.
As with all of our programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco, kids learn respect for others and themselves and are given opportunities to learn, grow and succeed. Through our outdoor education programs, like nature, gardening and environmental education, children are taught respect and appreciation for the natural environment.
Campers leave Camp Mendocino with high self-esteem, the result of mastering new skills and overcoming challenges. Campers return home with the confidence that they can meet new challenges, build new skills, and make new friends. But most importantly, Camp Mendocino is a place where kids can be kids again!
This year Camp Mendocino, a program of Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco, is excited to be offering Project Noyo – a 9-day summer session for $200 open exclusively to children of active duty military personnel and veterans of the U.S. Military.
The Project Noyo session (June 16-24) was developed in response to the need for increased support for military children. This session will provide a safe, fun and therapeutic healing environment where these young people can maintain healthy and connected relationships with other military youth and build a sense of community. Plus, they will participate in activities specifically designed for military youth, outdoor education, and have 9 days of fun!
To increase camper safety we have moved bus departure and arrivals to our Treasure Island Clubhouse.
All other locations have been discontinued. No Buses will leave from Richmond or Ocean Beach.
