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.
