Health and Safety

Camp Fire San Diego – Camp CaHiTo continues to follow guidance from federal, state, and local authorities, and the American Camp Association, 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.

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.
