Each year, Friends of Camp Sacramento sends families to camp who otherwise could not afford the experience. The program was founded by Allen Boyd, a former camp director and long time City of Sacramento employee who requested donations in lieu of retirement gifts.
Boyd Family Campership Program
Friends of Camp Sacramento partners with local non-profit organizations to ensure that appropriate families are selected for the program. In recent years, families have been selected by Cottage Housing and Sierra Forever Families. Additionally, Friends works closely with Camp Sacramento staff to provide essential logistical support to register families and ensure they are ready for camp.
