School Year & Holiday Camps

We offer day camps for your child over San Mateo-Foster City Unified School District Holidays- stay active and engaged during holiday and school breaks at Y Camp! Your child will learn new skills, build self-confidence, and make new friends when school’s not in session. Campers will laugh, learn, explore and grow, while creating memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. 

Day camp is childcare during school holidays and is a place for all campers to belong, achieve and build relationships. Our camps are timed to align with school holidays.
All day camps are for youth in grades K-8.
