For generations, YMCA Camps have provided children with rewarding experiences and a lifetime of memories. The YMCA offers a variety of summer day camps at our locations throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Options include holiday camps, specialty and sports camps, resident camps, leadership camps, travel camps, family camps, day camps, and camps for the entire summer.
Our YMCA camping programs are accredited by the American Camp Association, meeting the highest standards in camping services in 300 areas, including health, safety, personnel, transportation, and facilities! Whatever you're seeking, you are certain to find the right camp for you and your family.
In addition, Youth and Family Services YMCA offers four programs to assist local families:
