Day Camp

YMCA day camps offer everything you can think of when you think of camp in the heart of the city. We focus on hands-on experiences, arts, media, and challenges that make learning fun. Field trips, arts & crafts, camp songs, and organized games allow day-campers to really enjoy a unique experience.

We provide camps during Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring and Summer Vacations throughout the school year. These dates are based on SFUSD calendar. All camps are for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Financial assistance is available for families who qualify. Please submit the financial assistance application and supporting paperwork 5 days prior to camp start date to the Buchanan YMCA.
