Specialty Day Camp

Our phenomenal specialty day camps combine the traditional fun of YMCA day camps with the more specialized skills and learning of our outside specialty camp providers or YMCA experts.

Each specialty day camp has a wide range of subjects to campers to enjoy — from sports-related day camps concentrating on skills and techniques, to creative camps like ceramics that focus on expanding artistic skills and confidence.

More Information

This is the perfect opportunity for your teen to earn community service hours, all while making a difference and giving back. Teens will volunteer at local San Diego establishments such as Children’s Hospital, retirement homes, or the Humane Society. They will complete a week long service project, and end with a beach cleanup and beach BBQ celebration! This is a great camp for teens looking for new experiences!
