COVID-19 Response: Latest on CAP Program

The well-being and health of our community at Rob Hill Campground and the Camping at the Presidio (CAP) program is our top priority. All CAP-related programming (leadership trainings, overnight camping trips, and day use reservations) are cancelled until further notice.

If you have a CAP question or concern please email Ernesto Pepito at Ernesto is the Crissy Field Center's Associate Director and oversees & supports the CAP Program.

The Camping at the Presidio (CAP) Program provides youth with meaningful overnight camping experiences. Designed for community organizations and schools, CAP provides an affordable way for kids and groups to visit their national parks. Since 2007, CAP has met the need for thousands of Bay Area youth who lack access to camping in their national parks. 

Camping at the Presidio is a Crissy Field Center program, run in partnership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, the Presidio Trust, and the National Park Service.

Overall, to be able to spend time together outside in nature with a multigenerational group of people was amazing. People strived to make connections with one another and step out of their comfort zone; whether it be going on a hike, sleeping in a tent, sharing a memorable moment around the campfire, or simply letting themselves play, everyone challenged themselves and grew because of it.
