News relating to Camp Mather throughout the year.
Camp Mather is scheduled to reopen next summer, but we need your help today.
This winter, Friends of Camp Mather already is preparing and working to help Camp and its users. From big expenses like a brand-new sports court, to ongoing needs such as naturalist supplies, to cabin comforts such as a new dresser or mattress... these are just some of the ways the work of Friends of Camp Mather supports and enhances the Camp experience.
But none of this is possible without the generosity of supporters like you, because Friends of Camp Mather relies on donations from campers and the community to do our work. Funds raised by Friends of Camp Mather go right back to Camp — with practically zero overhead and an all-volunteer Board of Directors and staff, your gift will be put to great use.
This Giving Tuesday and beyond, consider making a donation to Friends of Camp Mather. Whether you are able to make a one-time gift of $35, $65, or $125 — or an ongoing pledge every month — your contribution is a vital part of improving the Mather experience for everyone.
Friends of Camp Mather is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so your donation not only will support Camp, but also may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Consult with your tax adviser or the IRS to determine whether your contribution is deductible.
Please make a donation today. Your gift will make a difference and enhance every camper’s experience… next summer and in the years to come.
We’re thankful to share that Camp Mather will be back for the summer of 2022!
As in past years, San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department will be conducting a lottery for cabin and campsite reservations. Mark your calendars to enter the lottery, which will begin on Thursday, December 2, 2021, and close on Thursday, January 6, 2022.
The lottery is beginning with a clean slate for 2022; no priority will be given to reservations that have been cancelled in previous years. And please note that for this year, proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all vaccine-eligible campers. You can learn more about the lottery process and other Camp Mather policies at sfrecpark.org/campmather.
Look for more updates from Friends of Camp Mather soon. But for now, we simply are grateful for the opportunity to reconnect with Camp Mather and our community. We wish campers, volunteers, and staff a wonderful holiday.
