Family Camping Weekends! 

The Point Bonita Y is pleased to offer Family Camping Weekends!

Join us for an extension of our Y Rangers (Play, Learn, Serve, Work) program, focused on getting outdoors and playing, learning, serving and working in our National Park.  This program will be offered 4 times per year, for up to 25 families. 

Each weekend will offer activities for families to do together, kid-specific activities while parents get some time to themselves, opportunities for families to form community with each other, and service projects to give back to and preserve our parks. We will provide all meals and accommodations. At this time, families will sleep in our historic dorm rooms. This is a partnership program between the YMCA of San Francisco and the National Park Service.
