San Francisco State Kids Camp

Welcome and thank you for choosing San Francisco State Kids Camp ... Let’s get started!

San Francisco State Kid’s Camp mission is to provide a safe and high quality summer experience that engages campers with recreation, field trips, and other interactive learning activities. Our diverse programming will educate at a beginner level, the dimensions of health and wellness in a fun summer environment.


Letter from the Coordinator of San Francisco State Kids Camp

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Thank you for joining us at the Mashouf Wellness Center for San Francisco State Kids Camp.  We are looking forward to getting to know both you and your camper/s.  We are currently planning an amazing summer, with engaging themes and activities. Being located at the new, state-of-the-art, Platinum LEED, Mashouf Wellness Center provided a unique opportunity for summer camp programming.  We will have access to the rock-wall, recreation field, a Multipurpose Activities Court (MAC) and two swimming pools.  
I possess seven summers of camp administration experience.  I have been the Director of Sports and also Director of Outdoor Adventure at three different camps.  Through these experiences I have learned how to create impactful summer experiences for your camper, while making any parent/guarding feel comfortable and confident in our abilities.
Safety: Safety is our #1 priority and before programming our activities.  We will be maintaining a camper to counselor ratio lower than the legal requirement, perform frequent headcounts and run activities specific for each age group.

Well-trained staff: Counselors will participate in 40 hours of intensive and specific camp training.  We will be discussing all the aspects of camps, safety, activity programming, and how to use the Mashouf Wellness Center to its fullest potential.   Our entire staff will be CPR, First Aid, AED certified. I am an instructor for the red cross, and will be doing the training personally.  

Diversity of programming: Campers benefit from diverse experiences and educational opportunities.  Our activities keep campers busy and engaged, all week, and all summer. 

We are an active camp: We are always shaking, moving, and producing new fun ways to be active!  We know we have done our jobs when your camper is happy and tired by the end of the day.   
I am proud and privileged that you have chosen us to be a part of your child’s summer.  If there is anything that I can do to assist you, please do not hesitate to call me.  We are confident that your child will enjoy their SFSKC experience!

About Our Staff

All of our counselors are matriculating San Francisco State Students. Each one will have a background check and be trained in CPR/First Aid & AED. Our counselor has been hired for their skills with youth and focus in wellness.


Snacks and Lunches

Snack will be provided every day for campers. Lunches should be brought by campers in a bag that has their own name. We will provide a refrigerator so cold lunches can be kept safe for lunch. We will not be able to heat up lunches for campers. There will be a “clean bites” in the facility for campers to use.


Daily Schedule

The daily schedule includes three activity periods in the morning, a wellness activity after lunch, and a major activity in the afternoon. Such as swimming, rock climbing, or big outdoor games. For campers who have less swimming experience, we have an activity pool with a soft floor and standing room at three feet. Each theme week will have its own correlating activities, games and a curriculum. Daily activities will include; arts and crafts, science projects, team building games, wellness and yoga, and big events on Fridays!


Our drop off procedure will be to park on campus, and walk your camper into the front doors of the Mashouf Wellness Center.  After entering make a quick left down the hallway towards the MAC court where the counselors will be waiting to sign your camper in for the day.  For pick-up, please find parking in front of the building, and walk into the Wellness Center to sign out your camper.  

There is parking along Font Blvd. and Lake Merced.  If you work on campus or want to use the parking structure, you can walk your camper to the Mashouf from there.
