The Crissy Field Center’s mission is to encourage new generations to become bold leaders for thriving parks, healthy communities, and a more environmentally just society. Situated within Golden Gate National Park, on the picturesque East Beach, we are housed in a sustainably designed building and implement green practices in all program areas. From utilizing 100% post-consumer recycled paper in our office to growing edible and native plants in our backyard, the Crissy Field Center staff truly believes that positive environmental change must start with us.

Camp Philosophy

We seek to provide children in-depth experiences in our urban environment and local national park. Through a rich combination of outdoor investigation, field outings, and fun hands-on projects, campers learn about important ecological concepts and issues while in a collaborative, community building environment.

We believe that children learn best when they feel safe and happy and we take great care to ensure the safety of every camper. Bullying, discrimination, or any action that jeopardizes the physical or emotional well-being of campers is strictly not tolerated.
