Summer Day Camp
San Diego is the ideal place for Aquatic Day Camps at the Beach!
Get your camper outdoors and to the seashore! Aquatic Day Camps combine the traditional fun of YMCA day camps with a specialized focus on skills and learning related to aquatic activities.
Whether your camper is riding the waves or making waves, these fun camps are perfect for anyone who loves the ocean — whether they are a fantastic swimmer or just learning.

Come hang ten with us this summer, and get your feet wet in the world of surfing in a safe, supervised, fun environment with YMCA surf staff. Start the week off on the beach learning how to pop up on your board and read the ocean. We will investigate different sets, breaks and tides. Surfers will learn paddling techniques and ultimately how to drop into the wave with our experienced instructors, who will also teach about water safety and equipment care. Daily instruction will be based on the ability levels of our campers, who will average an hour per day in the water. Our young surfers will also participate in beach sports and games.
Limited beginner boards are available – children sharing loaner boards may experience limited time in the water. Any boards brought by surfers must have nose and fin guards in order to be permitted for use. In the event of inclement weather or ocean conditions (e.g. rip tides, stingrays), campers will participate in beach activities until water entry is safe. Rash guards are required daily.
Please note: Campers must be able to swim 100 yards, tread water for five minutes and pass a swim test on the first day of camp
