a letter from the director
Summer 2016 is fast approaching! The Rancho Family YMCA is excited to kick off the 2016 Summer Camp Season! We strive to create the best possible summer experience for you and your child. We understand that you want a safe, fun and structured environment in which your child can stay active.
Our summer 2016 program is designed to foster learning, making and being a friend and becoming a part of something bigger. Each week, campers will have the opportunity to try something new, engage in team building and group activities, participate in global education and make new friends.
By choosing the Y you are joining a day camp program that is American Camp Association (ACA) accredited. We meet the highest standards in the nation's day camping industry by passing over 200 requirements.
We aim to keep a fresh menu of camps available to provide campers with variety. With that in mind, the Rancho Family YMCA has added several new and exciting camps this summer including LEGO:Pneumatics, Photography, Theatre and three new cooking camps! Let your child explore their natural curiosity and challenge themselves cognitively, physically and socially in one of the many camp options offered by the Y.
Thank you for trusting us to be a part of your family this summer!
