All of these rides are weather dependent.
We will still host the ride if it is raining lightly and will cancel rides due to inclement weather.

Please contact Hannah Childress at (415) 595-3398 with any questions.
We ask that your child does not attend camp and you notify us right away if they are positive for Covid-19 or if they are symptomatic due to an exposure. They can return on day 6 with proof of a negative test taken on day 5 if symptoms have improved and they are fever free without the use of fever reducing medications. If they test positive on day 5, they can continue testing until testing negative and return the day following the negative test or wait to return on day 11.
