Summer Day Camp
YMCA Summer Day Camp provides a safe and enriching environment for campers to participate in healthy, developmentally-appropriate activities and learning experiences. Our camps focus on having fun while learning, building self-esteem and developing social skills through new activities. Weekly themes keep campers engaged and provide a basis for kids to learn about themselves and the world around them. With so many options, it’s easy for your child to have the best summer ever!
Many of our YMCA Summer Day Camp programs are accredited by the American Camp Association, which means you can rest assured that we've met rigorous standards for organization, safety, health and program development. ACA is the only independent accrediting organization reviewing camp operations in the country. ACA's nationally recognized standards program focuses primarily on program quality, health, and safety aspects of a camp's operation. ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.
New this summer, the Gasol Foundation, founded by NBA All-Stars Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol, will introduce ENERGY (Educating, Nutrition, Exercise, Rest, and Goodness to Youth) to campers at our Southeast-Rio Vista YMCA, Weingart East Los Angeles YMCA and Weingart YMCA Wellness & Aquatic Center. Each week, ENERGY activities will take campers on a learning adventure to discover different planets (topics) so they can learn to live in a Healthy Galaxy (lifestyle).
