Camp Fire SD Membership All campers are required to become a Camp Fire SD member for $25. Benefits include Member Only Discounts, Newsletters, Event Notification and optional Club Programming. Each child in the family will need a Membership and it is good for the 2014 Season.

Street Sweeping Policy on Thursday AM Thursday morning is Street Sweeping Day in the park. We do our best to make the process of dropping off campers smooth & fast, however we cannot guarantee you will not get a ticket if you park on Balboa Dr. We have a 10-15 minute Drop Off Zone on Thursdays, if the Zone is Full we recommend parking on Sixth Ave and walking across the park to sign your campers in. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

No Cell Phone Policy Camp CaHiTo is a CELL PHONE FREE ZONE. Please do not send a cell phone with your child. If we find any cell phone that is in use by a child, the phone will be taken away until the end of the camp day and a warning will be issued to both the parents and to the child. A second infraction to adhere to the “NO Cell Phone Policy” could be cause for my child’s dismissal from our summer program without a refund. Staff have cell phones for any and all emergencies and therefore, a phone is available at all times in the event that one is needed.

Payments & Refund Policy A request to cancel your enrollment in a program is required in writing 14 days prior to the first day of camp. You will receive a Voucher minus 50% of the total price of the program good for 6 months. There will be no Vouchers or Refunds due to illness.
