Dear Families,                                                                                           July 2018

Golden Gate District Destination Day Camp is almost here!  We are looking forward to having fun exploring four spots in San Francisco and performing a service project in Golden Gate Park. I hope this letter will give you all the info you need to prepare for a fun time. Feel free to contact me or Dylan Hendrickson with any questions or concerns.

Please be sure to bring a completed BSA Annual Health & Medical Record A & B (attached) on Monday, and make sure your camper has a backpack with lunch and clothing layers for our varied weather.




San Francisco Zoo and Gardens – with special Barnyard visit

Drop off/pick up on the South side of Sloat Blvd at 47th Ave, to the left of the parking lot entrance. We’ll have a table set up on the sidewalk. There should be plenty of street parking at 9:30, don’t drive into the Zoo parking lot or you will have to pay a fee. The L Taraval goes here, note Twin Peaks tunnel is closed, so shuttle busses are in effect. The 18 and 23 also stop nearby.



Drop off/pick up at Sue Bierman Park playground, Washington St between Drumm and the Embarcadero. Parking is tough here, one of us will be on the sidewalk for drop off./pick-up. Take Muni/BART to Embarcadero Station, or the F Market to the Ferry Building.


Maritime Museum/Hyde Street Pier and Aquatic Park

Drop off/pick up just east of the museum in the park at 900 Beach St. at Polk St. The 19 Polk runs here, also Hyde Street Cable Car, Van Ness Ave busses, and 30 Stockton are near.


Stow Lake & Mothers Meadow with Conservation Project and closing “campfire”

Drop off/pick up Mothers Meadow in Golden Gate Park, 525 Martin Luther Kind Jr. Drive, east of Crossover Drive. The 28, 29, and 7 run near here, the N Judah stop is two blocks south at 19th Ave.



  • Drop off is between 9:30 and 10:00 and pick up is by 3:00 (we will get to the spot by 2:55). 
  • Traffic and parking is challenging in the city. You can do a rolling drop-off and pick-up from Monday pm through Thursday am. We will be at the curb with the check-in sheet.
  • On Monday at the Zoo you will need to park and check your camper(s) in and turn in medical forms. On Thursday you are welcome to come to our closing “campfire” at Mother’s Meadow at 2:30. If you don’t find parking on MLK Drive, you can actually park at Stow Lake and walk down a path to Mothers Meadow.
  • We will only release campers to the adults listed on the Health Form, unless other arrangement is made
  • You can call me at 415-412-5915 if you are going to be late.


Each youth attending camp, and every adult chaperone, needs to bring the BSA Annual Heath & Medical Record Parts A & B (attached). Please fill it out beforehand, and note that a copy of insurance card is to be attached. You can read about the form here:



Every day:

Backpack with water bottle & sunscreen       

Lunch and a snack

Sturdy walking shoes and a jacket, hat if desired


We will spend time at Aquatic Park so all are encouraged to bring a towel and swim clothes if desired. Change of clothes if desired.

Thursday: we are doing a conservation project in Golden Gate park, likely pulling weeds and planting. Tools & gloves will be provided. Long pants


Electronics or anything precious. We are not responsible for items that get lost or damaged. We have a “no electronics” policy as far as video games and YouTube, etc. If your child carries a cell phone to be in contact with you, please let me know.


Camp uniform is the camp t-shirt, provided on Monday. Pack t-shirts or other scout shirts are great, too.


Thank you to parents who signed up to be chaperones. You are strongly encouraged to take the recently updated BSA Youth Protection training, the same that all registered leaders are required to take. In fact, I encourage all parents of scouts to take the training to be informed about what steps the BSA takes to ensure youth are safe. The information is relevant to all parts of our children’s lives. Go to the link on this page to register:

If you would take a moment to email me back so I can be sure I have the right email address for your family I would appreciate it. Again, let me know if you have any questions or concerns about camp.
