News relating to Camp Mather throughout the year.
SF Rec and Park has shared the unfortunate news that Camp Mather will remain closed for the summer of 2021, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. While we are sad to imagine a second straight summer without Mather, we understand that the current circumstances would make it impossible to properly ensure the safety of guests and staff. So while it was surely a difficult decision, it was clearly the right one.
We now look forward even more to the day that we can safely return to Mather, to enjoy a swim in Birch Lake and share a meal with family and friends in the Jack Spring Dining Hall. Though we've never been accused of taking Mather for granted, it's safe to say we will appreciate it more the next time we visit.
