Fun For Everyone!

We have fun for everyone this summer, regardless of your age, income or background. We bring people closer together in a welcoming, supportive environment to nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living and give back to the community. This summer, children can learn, grow and thrive through the exhilarating fun of sports, day and specialty camps at the Y. In the midst of all the fun, they’ll explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships. Teens can have fun socializing with their friends in a safe, positive environment while exploring interests, learning leadership skills, and discovering all they can achieve.

Plan your summer fun at the Y, and experience the impact we can make in your life and in the community! Download the 2018 Summer Camp Guide.

This two week training session includes topics such as: CPR & First Aid training, camp leadership, group games, public speaking, child development and a ton of other cool activities related to working in the field of youth development! LITs will also have a great time making new friends, taking exciting field trips and learning new skills.

This year we will offer two opportunities to get trained to be a LIT. LITs will need to complete one of the 2 week sessions in order to participate in any weeks of field work.

Specialty Camp for 1st-5th Grades

YMAKERS CAMP

This is an amazing opportunity for your child to gain hands-on experience with basic woodworking and crafting tools. Makers are coached through designing and building their own projects, and they can learn more advanced tools and techniques by working on group projects led by YMakers staff. Youth will learn the key safety skills of protecting themselves, while learning to use hammers, drills, screwdrivers, and while there are power tools present, they are only handled by trained staff. While we know these skills are invaluable to all ages, due to lengthy nature of some of the projects and fine motor skills needed, we are only enrolling 2nd - 5th graders.

Week:  2 (June 18-22) & 6 (July 16-20)
Community Participant: $360/week
Facility Member: $288/week

 

YBIKE

Bring your bike to camp! Do you remember that freedom and independence you felt the first time you rode a bike? The set of programs and initiatives now collectively known as “YBike” began in 2002 when a Presidio Y member began volunteering to teach kids how to ride bikes. We realized early on that bicycles provide the perfect tool to help youth. Led by caring adults, we engage more than 4,000 participants each year, resulting in thousands of youth who are active, outdoor enthusiasts and skilled cyclists.
