New for You at Jackie Robinson Family YMCA | YMCA of San Diego County

What's New this Month

At Jackie Robinson Family YMCA

Make the Most of Your Y

Providing service. Creating impact. As a cause-driven organization, the YMCA puts people first and is dedicated to making a difference.

Amber, mother of 7 year old camper Jordan, recognizes the service and impact that the Y can provide for a family like hers.

Anxious at the thought of their first summer away from each other, Amber needed a camp that would provide peace of mind. She reached out to the Y for more information, explaining everything she needed from a camp provider and her fears based on past experiences with damaging childcare environments.

She found everything she was looking for and more with her experience at the Y. The staff sat down with her and answered all of her questions, helped her navigate scholarship opportunities and applications, and hand tailored a summer schedule that balanced specialty and traditional camps.

After having sat down for over an hour one-on-one with our staff, Amber's anxiety about her son's summer faded. Seeing that the staff went the extra mile and didn't treat her situation as abnormal showed Amber that the Y is there to provide for her and cares about the experiences of the diverse individuals and families we serve.

Be like Amber and find the perfect program for you with us by your side.
