We are deeply saddened to cancel our 2020 sleep away camp at Camp Whittle Camp Round Meadow and Camp High Sierra due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sleep Away Camp

Give your child the gift of sleep away camp and you’ll be amazed at how much they’ll grow in a week.  Nestled in beautiful Big Bear Lake, CA, your child will attend YMCA Camp Whittle or YMCA Camp Round Meadow, where they will enjoy seven (7) nights of lodging, meals, transportation to and from camp, and activities that may include archery, swimming, canoeing, banana boat rides, ropes courses, music activities, zip lines, climbing wall, dodgeball, hiking, arts & crafts, mountain biking, horse riding and more.

YMCA membership is not required and, in order to provide flexibility for families and more opportunities for kids, campers may choose to register and attend Y Camp with any of our branches. Camp scholarships are also available for qualifying households.

Sign up for Y Sleep Away Camp today!

For more information, please contact your local Y or call YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles Camping Services at 909 866 3000.
