Getting Trained Up to Camp Out


This video is an introduction to the Camping at the Presidio Leadership Training (CAPLT). During this 30-hour, overnight leadership training course, participants learn about gear, transportation, educational programming, guided hikes, and more—knowledge they’ll use when they bring their groups for a full camping experience in the Presidio of San Francisco.

Since 2007, Camping at the Presidio (a program of the Conservancy in partnership with the Presidio Trust, Bay Area Wilderness Training, and the National Park Service) has provided youth with meaningful overnight camping experiences. Designed for community organizations and schools, CAP offers a dynamic and affordable way to enrich the lives of young people who traditionally have not visited national parks.
