Camp Widow San Diego
San Diego, California is home to the first ever Camp Widow weekend, and also our longest running camp location. We head to San Diego in the summer months to take advantage of the cool coastal temperatures and resort feel of this bay-front location. Our San Diego location also offers our once-a-year Camp Widow Kids program for those who are widowed and parenting kids between the ages of 5-17. Please see the Camp Widow Kids page for details.
Please note: ADA compliant service animals and certified therapy dogs may be on site throughout this event. No other animals will be permitted.
*Registration Notice: Due to the unprecedented challenges associated with planning in-person events safely during this time, refunds for registrations to Camp Widow events are not available but we will be happy to transfer your registration to another US-based event within one year of your original registration or offer a donation receipt if you choose not to attend. We appreciate your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
*COVID-19 Management Plan:
Each camper assumes the risk in regards to exposure to COVID-19 due to their attendance at our event. We will no longer be requiring proof of vaccination status or proof of a negative test. However, in order to create a safe physical space that supports emotional wellbeing, for which Camp Widow is known, we highly recommend that each camper considers a self test prior to leaving for camp. Please be prepared with a contingency plan should you test positive for COVID-19. Each camper will be responsible for themselves should they need to quarantine or be unable to attend Camp Widow due to a positive test result.
If you are feeling sick or exhibiting any COVID-19-like symptoms, or if you have been exposed to COVID-19 within five days of attending camp, we recommend you stay home and contact us at [email protected] to transfer your camp registration.
Please NOTE: You can transfer your camp registration to US locations only and not further than one year in advance.
Hotel Commitment to Cleanliness: The Marriott Marquis and Marina Hotel is committed to offering a safe stay for all of their guests. Please reference their updated cleaning policy for more information online here.
Campers are responsible for coordinating their own hotel reservations, and the discounted block of rooms will be posted on our location information page approximately six months prior to the event.
