Camp Mendocino is an outdoor education and environmental awareness program focused on the character and leadership development of kids from disadvantaged circumstances. For 85 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco has been providing this creative, fun and supportive camping experience for youth ages eight to 18. We surround our kids with positive role models 24 hours a day to provide the love and encouragement they need to realize their full potential.
Located in a beautiful 2,000 acre redwood forest three-and-a-half hours north of San Francisco, Camp Mendocino offers programs that are clearly unique to those offered at our eight 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.
We understand that hiring, training and retaining the best staff possible is critical to our success with young people. By acting as a strong role model and staff member, you can develop our campers’ abilities to make the correct choices. Many of the campers who attend Camp Mendocino come from some of the most challenging neighborhoods in the San Francisco Bay Area. Your influence will inspire and help them become a successful and productive adult.
Camp Mendocino is the perfect venue for your company retreat, family gathering, wedding, or adult summer camp. Camp Mendocino features all the things you think of when you think “summer camp,” including a swimming hole, archery course, high ropes and zip lining course, basketball courts, arts and crafts center, an amphitheater, and a dining hall. Even better, all rental fees help support our camper scholarship program!
We welcome rental groups in May and August through October.
