Summer Day Camp

YMCA Summer Day Camps provide 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 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. We have many options for your child to have the best summer ever!

The YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles has many accredited Summer Day Camp programs by the American Camp Association. That means 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.

Day Camps are open Monday through Friday, 7am-6pm. All field trips and organized programming occur between 9am and 4pm. Extended care free play, during the hours of 7-9am and 4-6pm, is included in weekly camp at no additional cost! In observance of Independence Day, camp will be closed on July 4.
