Adventure Clubs - Parent and Child Camping | Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA

Adventure Clubs At Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA

The Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA in Encinitas is proud to offer Adventure Clubs — This Program offers a unique experience for parents and their children (see Club age categories below) to enjoy outdoor weekend camping experiences at some of the best camping spots in Southern California! The monthly campouts will take you to the desert, mountains, beaches and even Catalina Island! Your weekends will include many fun activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, campfire skits, songs, pinewood derby races, crafts, bead trading, event patches and more!   

The Adventure Clubs season runs from September to June and most Club Calendars include one campout per month (excluding December). You may join any time during the season. The weekend campouts generally begin Friday late afternoon and end Sunday morning. You will be a part of a larger group called an “Adventure Club” and then a smaller “group” within the Club. 

This program is designed to nurture relationships between parent and child - you will make friends and memories that will last a lifetime! You will treasure this bonding time with your child in the Adventure Clubs Program!

At the heart of the Adventure Clubs are the Compass Points:

  • Family: The “true north” of Adventure Clubs that everything centers around.
  • Nature: Directly experiencing and camping in the great outdoors is an integral part of Adventure Clubs.
  • Community: The spirit of Adventure Clubs is strongest when belonging to a community — known as the “Circle”.
  • Fun: The magic ingredient that makes each Adventure Club a memory to last a lifetime.

Each Adventure Club offers group activities everyone can participate in — including games, crafts, songs, stories, skits, ceremonies, as well as camping, hiking, swimming and community service. Adventure Clubs also include special one-on-one time for each parent and child, helping build important bonds through a shared experience in a fun environment you can't find anywhere else.
