YMCA Day Camp Programs

 

YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles has been serving families for over 140 years. Your family can count on the Y to ensure your child is having fun in a safe, nurturing environment. We offer a variety of day camp programs, throughout the school breaks, to meet the needs of parents and match the interests of our campers.

Our Day Camps have inspired kids with countless opportunities to laugh, lead and make lasting friendships. Since your family's safety is our top priority, we have implemented safety protocols that follow state and local guidelines. It is our priority to help your children enjoy a safe and fun program where they can build lasting friendships.

At YMCA Day Camps, children gain a sense of belonging, achieve more and build strong relationships.

  • There are (3) three options to pay (options can be done in combination): (1) register online and pay, week-by-week, pending space availability, (2) register online and pay in full for all desired weekly sessions, or (3) reserve your space by placing a $25 non-refundable deposit on any desired program sessions.  The program session must then be paid, in full, via a pre-set electronic funds transfer (EFT) or automatic transfer service (ATS), by the Monday prior to the start of the weekly session.
