Covid Safety:

The JCCSF takes staff and camper health very seriously and has aligned all of our operating procedures with the San Francisco Department of Public Health guidelines. Staff and campers (ages 2+) are required to wear masks all day, except while eating. Each room is set up to allow for social distancing and campers and staff are assigned to stable cohorts that do not mix. Our program support teams clean and disinfect our indoor active spaces after each use, and all public spaces throughout the day. Program staff help to keep the room and supplies clean during the day, and then each space is deep cleaned each day after programming is over.
