Good News! San Jose Family Camp is Open Once Again!
San Jose Family Camp has been saved – for now – thanks to some dedicated citizens organizing to do make the kinds of changes needed to make the program worth the investment of the City of San Jose.
Congratulations to the ad hoc group made up mostly of members of the Friends of San Jose Family Camp, but including savvy PR/Marketing professional Barbara Krause (a long time "Family Camp" participant), San Jose Parks Foundation Executive Director James Reber, and recently-retired San Jose City Staffer turned volunteer, Bill Guraro, who used to run the program.
Friends of Family Camp will continue to provide essential volunteer labor, prices will be raised a modest amount and further fundraising will help keep this jewel alive.
