Notice to our Families
The safety and health of all of our campers and staff is always our highest priority. Due to continued directives from San Diego County Health and California Department of Public Health regarding gatherings and social distancing, we have Cancelled our Spring Season. Canceled Camps will receive full refunds, including membership fees (if applicable). Summer Camps will begin on June 1st unless conditions call for an extension.
We regret any inconvenience this causes to our families. We appreciate your support of Camp Fire San Diego – Camp CaHiTo and your understanding during this time. As the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office at 619-291-8985 or email [email protected].
What is Camp CaHiTo Doing?
Camp Fire San Diego – Camp CaHiTo continues to follow CDC guidance, as well the guidance from public health departments at the State and County levels to keep our campers and staff populations safe and healthy. The safety and health of all of our campers and staff is always the highest priority. We have always taken great care to develop and maintain medical practices to address a variety of communicable diseases, both common and rare.
In accordance with guidance from the CDC, San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, California Department of Public Health, and the American Camping Association, we will be implementing required pre-camp and arrival day screening. Health Screening practices will begin before camp starts; we ask that parents and staff delay arrival if an individual has symptoms of fever, cough and/or shortness of breath, or if there is known exposure to COVID-19. Should an individual arrive at Camp with symptoms, Campers will not be allowed to stay.
Beyond our daily cleaning efforts, you can expect to see our staff cleaning frequently touched surfaces more often, throughout the facility. We will also be providing more hand sanitizers and scheduled handwashing times throughout the day for Campers.
We will continually be updating our policy as additional COVID-19 guidance is provided. Camp Cancellations will be made in accordance with guidelines from public health authorities, coupled with other considerations. We will be following all directives to reduce exposure at Camp and continue to update you if the public health department decides on: quarantines, Camp closures, and exclusion policies.
No one could have ever projected our current reality. As Camp Fire San Diego – Camp CaHiTo programs temporarily close, our staff will be doing everything we can to support our youth and securing the future of our organization during this crisis.
Right now, our council is facing a funding gap due to our canceled Spring Camps. If you are so inclined and in a position to help Camp Fire San Diego navigate through this period of uncertainty and remain strong throughout the pandemic, please consider supporting us through a donation. We understand this might not be feasible for all households and may cause hardship.
