To create an account, visit San Francisco Recreation and Parks online. Once you have an account, you will be able to register online 24/7 with a Visa or Mastercard.


Randall Museum Summer camp registrations require proof of age. Proof of age is mandatory. If you established your Family Account without showing proof of your child’s age, you must do so by April 15th or you will be removed from the summer camp list. You will also be charged a 20% processing fee. Please provide proof of age in the form of a copy of a birth certificate, passport or medical ID card with full birthdate, and mail it, drop it off, or fax it to the museum’s registrar. Please note that if you provided proof of age when establishing your Family Account, you do NOT need to do so again.

For the best chance of getting into the camp(s) of your choice, we highly recommend that you create your Family Account well in advance of camp registration and use the online registration system.

You may also register in person at the Randall Museum, at McLaren Lodge in Golden Gate Park, or at other selected Recreation & Park facilities throughout the city. For walk-in registration, you may pay by Visa, Mastercard, check, money order, or cash with exact change. There are no exceptions to the requirement to create a family account and provide proof of your child’s date of birth. Completed camp applications received by mail or fax will be processed by our registrar Tuesdays through Fridays, depending upon availability. Sorry, we cannot accept camp registrations by fax or telephone.

Camp registration is first-come, first-served. There is no lottery and no priority/early registration.

Partial scholarships are available to low-income San Francisco residents. Visit or call 415-831-6800 during regular business hours to learn whether you qualify and how to apply.
