a letter from the director

Dear Y Camp Families,

Summer 2017 is quickly approaching! The Rancho Family YMCA is thrilled to kick off the 2017 Summer Camp Season. We strive to create the best possible summer experience for all campers and families. We understand the ultimate summertime goal is for a safe and structured environment, where your children can stay active while having a blast.

Our Summer 2017 program has been designed to encourage friendships, foster learning and create the opportunity to belong to something bigger. Each week, campers will try something new, engage in teambuilding and group activities, participate in global education, and make new friends, creating the ultimate summer camp experience.

By choosing the Y, your family is joining a day camp program that has been accredited by the American Camp Association, which is only granted by meeting the highest standards in the nation’s day camp industry, passing more than 200 requirements to ensure the best camp environment possible.

Each summer we aim to provide a varied selection of camps to allow your children the opportunity to try new experiences that interest them. This summer we have some exciting new camps including Chess, Pokémon, and Build-A-Camp. Let your children explore natural curiosities and challenge themselves cognitively, physically and socially in our many camp options offered by the Y.

Thank you for trusting us to be a part of your family’s summer. We are excited for the Best Summer Ever!

"My daughter has been to 3 other Y camps and this is by far the best experience for her. Thank you to all the staff for greeting her by name and enjoying your job and never seeming burned out. She loved the Friday camp rallies and memorized each song, and won many spirit sticks! Keep up the great work!!"
