Camper Advisory Committee

In 2014 SFAH established a Camper Advisory Committee (CAC).  The CAC consists of a diverse group of former and current campers and parents, members of the Board of Directors, and management.  It was formed to give campers and parents a stronger voice in future camp planning.  In addition, the committee provides advice, mentorship and assistance to our younger generation of campers. This Board initiative has become an invaluable planning and evaluation tool.  In 2017, SFAH’s Board voted unanimously to formalize the CAC by creating a permanent Advisory Board.  Members of the Advisory Board will endeavor to provide the Home with new perspectives based on their personal experiences and connections and will assist with improving programming and fundraising.

Currently the CAC is working on topics which include:

  • Camper fundraising

  • Mentorship programs

  • Maximizing the summer camp schedule

  • Camper recruitment

If you wish to contact the CAC with any comments or suggestions, or to nominate a current or alumni camper for the committee, please email us: office@sfah.org or call (631) 283-1594 ext.103.
