On April 21st, we made the difficult decision to cancel Camp Mendocino’s 89th summer. Today, we are excited to announce new ways that we hope to serve our Camp Mendocino community!

VIRTUAL LIT & CIT PROGRAMS
Virtual Leaders-in-Training Program
This program is for youth aged 14-16 who will be eligible to be a Camp LIT for summers 2020 or 2021.
Program meets twice a week on Tuesday and Thursdays from June 16th to July 9th.
Goal of this program is to make space for LITs to continue to build relationships with each other and Camp staff whilst also learning the skills necessary to be college and career ready.
All youth who complete this program will receive a $50 Visa Gift Card.
In order to successfully complete this program and receive the $50 gift card, you must participate in all scheduled sessions and complete an online portfolio.
Virtual Counselor-in-Training Program
This *NEW* program is designed for youth aged 17-18 who will be eligible to be adult Camp Mendocino staff for summers 2020 or 2021.
Program meets twice a week on Monday and Wednesday from June 15th to July 8th. See full schedule here.
Goal of this program is to give former Camp LITs a space to continue to build relationships, as well as develop job readiness skills prior to their first year on staff at Camp.
Youth who complete this program will be eligible to work for Camp Mendocino’s day camp program in San Francisco, as well as the first opportunity to interview to work at Camp for summer 2021.
CAMP MENDOCINO @ HOME
It can get boring at home this summer, so we've got a full web page of resources for you and your families. Click below for access to virtual resources, downloadable activities, and youtube videos from some of your favorite staff!
What are they?
Virtual Campfires are a place for campers to engage with staff and peers in a virtual space. It doesn't take the place of being at Camp, but hopefully it gives campers the chance to see some of their Village staff, play some games, and connect with Camp friends.
What to expect?
*This is a sample agenda - things might change!
All campers arrive & welcome!

How do we participate:
Please register with the button below. We are asking for registrations so that we can track which campers are in attendance. We will send the zoom link to all that register. For Project Noyo families, we will also be sending you a a "Military Youth Outreach" form (if you haven't already filled it out when registering for overnight camp). This form helps to show Boys & Girls Clubs of America that we are working with military families and allows us to access additional funds to keep the cost of Camp so low for families in the future.
IN-PERSON DAY CAMP
In order to help support our community, Camp Mendocino will be offering an in-person day camp program for Camp families. The city of San Francisco has introduced very specific requirements to operate youth programs this summer. We will be following their guidance and implementing appropriate protocols. Unfortunately, this means we are limited in the number of youth we are allowed to serve. As plans continue to evolve, we will update this information.
Families that fit the following criteria will be given first priority for registration:
Campers who are economically and/or physically vulnerable
Campers whose parents/guardians are essential workers and do not have options for childcare
Campers whose parents/guardians are healthcare worker or other essential city worker
July 6-24, 2020
*Specific pick up and drop off times will be required and information sent after registration
