Instead of the glare from a TV, their eyes sparkle from gazing at the stars, talk replaces text, and LOL's are actual laughs out loud. Games aren't virtual as campers hike, bike and soar to discover confidence, friendship and a sense of belonging with our warm and caring staff.

Depending on the camp selected, kids head to either YMCA Camp Whittle or YMCA Camp Round Meadow, each beautiful locations in Big Bear, California. Campers enjoy seven (7) nights of lodging, meals, transportation to and from camp, and activities that may include archery, swimming, canoeing, banana boat rides, ropes courses, music activities, zip lines, climbing wall, dodgeball, hiking, arts & crafts, mountain biking, horse riding and more.*

YMCA membership is not required and, in order to provide flexibility for families and more opportunities for kids, campers may choose to register and attend Y Camp with any of our branches. Camp scholarships are also available for qualifying households.

Give your child the gift of a summer unplugged and sign up for Y Camp today.

For more information, please contact your local Y or call YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles Camping Services at 909-866-3000.

We get kids offline and outside because the best special effects are produced by Mother Nature. #NoFilterNeeded
