YMCA Summer Camp is more than just child care

Leadership abilities that last a lifetime.

The Ventura Family YMCA is gearing up for another summer filled with adventure, laughter, and enriching the lives of the Y campers, parents and staff.

Summer Camp is more than just child care, Y camp creates a world of good where children find a sense of belonging, and parents are assured their child is safe and making new discoveries every day.

Y Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association, which recognizes that the YMCA facilitates summer camp programs that are committed to building a safe, nurturing environment for their children.

The memories, friendships, and skills from summer camp stay with a child long after back-to-school. While a child is free to play and explore at camp, they are also developing cognitive and social-emotional abilities.

“I was a bridesmaid in a wedding of a friend I met at Y Camp. We were campers, then camp staff together. I led her entire wedding party in a repeat-after-me song we learned while at Y Camp. It was a full circle moment.” Shianne Motter, former Y camper.

Play time with new friends is not time wasted. Summer Camp at the Y is structured with adventure, songs, sports, and crafts, which serve as powerful forms of self-discovery, and teachable moments.

The enrollment & registration process can be completed online for the first time this year, and camp is filling up at record speed. Make sure your camper does not miss out on the best summer ever at the Y. To register, visit: www.ciymca.org/camp

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Channel Islands YMCA serves over 46,000 individuals and provides over $1.3 million in financial assistance to families in need for child care, YMCA memberships, away and day camps, youth sports, and teen after-school programs.
