FIRST-TIME CAMPERS

WELCOME TO CAMP!

At Camp Mendocino, we recognize that sending your camper away for the very first time can be scary. Since 1931, we have been provding high-quality programs for young people and we get excited every single time a new camper gets on the bus.

 

Camp Mendocino is a program of Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF), who has been serving youth of San Francisco since 1891. As part of this important organization, not only do we we share a mission and core values, but our staff receive high-quality training and development from some of the best youth development professionals in the area

We’re open when kids need us most - after school, on most school holidays and all day during the summer.  Clubs offer safe places where young people can learn, grow, and succeed.

We take our jobs seriously, and caring for your children is our most important responsibility.
