Camping at the Presidio (K-12)

​​​​​​Imagine spending the night in a national park with your students. Rob Hill Campground – nestled in a eucalyptus grove in the Presidio – is one of the park’s hidden gems. The only camping facility in San Francisco, Rob Hill is a fantastic venue for outdoor learning and fun, bringing the experience of a national park to students within a safe setting without leaving the city. All camping equipment (including tents, sleeping bags, pads, and cooking gear) is provided.

The CAP program serves several thousand students annually, providing meaningful gateway camping experiences to youth who traditionally have not visited national parks. Teachers who are interested in participating must first apply and meet eligibility requirements. Participation in an overnight CAP leadership training is required before a teacher can schedule a camping trip for their class.​​​​
