Dear La Honda Parents,

We are writing to inform you that the Hayward La Honda Music Camp will have a delayed start of 24 hours. The reason for the delay is that several campers from the previous week experienced flu symptoms. Out of an abundance of caution and to guarantee a safe camp experience, the Public Health Department is currently inspecting the camp to certify that the camp can continue starting Sunday at 10am. As an additional precaution, we are asking that parents complete the pre-screen questionnaire to ensure all campers are free of any symptoms prior to coming to camp. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience as we ensure a safe camp experience for everyone. We look forward to seeing you and your camper on Sunday, July 23 for registration from 10:00 AM to 1:00PM.

For any questions regarding Hayward La Honda Music Camp, please call 510.537.4871 or lahondamusiccamp@gmail.com.

For any questions regarding the inspection or public health safety, please contact the Health Department at 650 573-2346

Q: Is the camp safe for my child?
