Every camper must have a recent (within the last year) physical on file with Camp in order to attend. We understand that obtaining a physical can be challenging for families. Therefore, Camp will offer 5 free physicals for campers this year. You do not have to be a member of BGCSF to participate in a free physical. Dates & locations are below:
Friday, May 10th, 5-6pm -- Don Fisher Clubhouse - 380 Fulton Street in SF
Friday, May 17th, 5-6pm -- Visitacion Valley Clubhouse - 251 Leland Ave in SF
Saturday, June 1st, 10-11am -- Willie Mays - 195 Kiska Road in SF
Friday, June 14th, 5-6pm -- Mission Clubhouse - 901 Alabama Street in SF
Saturday, July 6th, 10-11am -- Tenderloin - 115 Jones Street in SF
If someone other than the camper's legal guardian is bringing the camper to the physical, they must have a signed copy of the Parent Health History form with them. This form gives our doctors consent to treat the campers and without it, and without a guardian present, the doctors will not see your camper. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Attending a BGCSF physical is not necessary. If your camper has had a physical in the last year (after August 6, 2017) for school or sport teams, you can submit this documentation.
Your physical does not need to be on the Camp Mendocino physical form, however if you choose to, please fill out Part A of the form (which is part of your 2018 Camp Application Packet) and bring it to your doctor, a health clinic, or one of the free physical exams. Forms without doctor’s signatures will not be accepted.
Forms must be turned in no later than 7 days prior to session departure date. No forms may be turned in on departure day
Transportation to and from Camp is provided. Parents are not permitted to drive their children to Camp.
Camp contracts charter buses to transport campers to Camp. These buses are equipped with restrooms, air conditioning, and luggage compartments. All drivers have been background checked and are certified to transport school-age children.
Buses depart from and return to the Lower Reservoir Parking Lot of City College of San Francisco, 11 Frida Kahlo Way (formerly known as Phelan Ave.)
Bus Departure and return times and locations can be found here prior to the summer.
At departure, families will find their camper’s bus number at the main registration table, fill out luggage tags for all camper luggage, then proceed to their designated bus table. At the bus table, the camper will be checked in. If the camper has medication, it will be turned in at the table to staff. If families would like to leave cash for the Canteen, they can do so at the bus table.
At return, anyone picking up a camper must be listed as one of the camper’s emergency contacts and must be prepared to show ID. Failing to follow these procedures will result in significant wait time for the person picking up as well as the camper.
Families can track the return buses by calling the Bus Hotline: (415) 445-5455. Return times are dependent upon traffic and road conditions.
Summer Foods Program Information
Part of the application you fill out for your camper includes an application for the California Department of Education Summer Food Service Program. This allows Camp Mendocino to receive funding for meals served at Camp. All Camp applications include this form. Eligibility for the summer foods program does NOT affect your eligibility for Camp scholarships, nor does it change the price of Camp for families. We offer families the lowest available price, regardless of Summer Foods Program eligibility. For more information on the summer foods program, please click here. Note, the application form is available as part of the paper and online application. The copy on the link above is for informational purposes only.
