GREAT SUMMERS START AT THE Y
The YMCA of San Francisco is committed to providing quality youth programming and exceptional summer camp experiences to our Bay Area families. At Y day camp, kids can develop skills, self-confidence, new friendships and a sense of belonging – all while having tons of fun.
Put those books away, this kind of learning happens outside this classroom! Summer is here and it’s time to get off the couch meet some new friends! The Marin YMCA Day Camp provides a safe and positive atmosphere for our campers to play, explore, and create. This 9 week, theme based camp will be full of opportunities to meet new friends, engage in project based activities, and explore the city around them.
We build an environment of learning by working together as a team and teaching youth about our four core values of: caring, responsibility, honesty, and respect. We will divide campers according to grade level following an age relevant schedule of group games, mini local trips, arts and crafts, recreational swimming, field trips, and so much more! Sign up and let’s start our summer adventure!
