Camp CaHiTo day camps in Balboa Park have various themes to choose from and different activities each day; activities include hiking, archery, arts and crafts, sports, singing, swimming and much more.
Children must be at least 5-year’s old of age to attend Traditional Day Camps. Is your camper between the ages of 3-5? If so our Little Stars Program for campers under 5-year old is for them. If you have questions about your 5-year old’s appropriateness for either of our camps, please contact us.
Wholesome and fun camp experiences are what make Camp CaHiTo one of the most popular camps around.
Camp CaHiTo is the San Diego affiliate of the Camp Fire organization, a national leader in youth development for more than 100 years. Camp Fire has always recognized that curious youth exploring their world need a secure place to grow up. And since 1910 we’ve provided that place through camps.
When children attend Camp CaHiTo camps, they discover an amazing 7.5-acre reserve in Balboa Park. We use the well-established curriculum from Camp Fire to facilitate outdoor adventures, social growth and decision-making skills.
We believe in the power of nature to awaken the senses and the desire to learn. Our camps and outdoor programs allow kids to unplug from technology for a full week (or more!) while they explore, grow, challenge themselves, make new friends, get out of their comfort zone, gain confidence and make powerful memories—all with our highly trained, caring staff by their side every step of the way.
Camp CaHiTo has camps running throughout the year for children ages 3 and up, including spring break camp, summer camp, Thanksgiving camp, and winter camp programs.
