Health and Safety Plan

House of Air has created this Health and Safety Plan that follows the guidelines provided by the Department of Public Health regarding required best practices for Summer Camps provided on May 26th, 2020. This plan will outline these new best practices and the operational changes that will be enforced for House of Air's Summer Camps for 2020. Our goal is to provide parents, guardians, campers, and staff with all necessary information in order to offer the safest environment possible this summer.

House of Air Summer Camp is registered with the San Francisco Department of Children, Youth and Their Families .
