The YMCA of San Diego County's summer day camp season is in full swing! While many of our popular camps are full, rosters fluctuate throughout the summer,  and spots often become available in the days leading up to each camp week. Check this page for a quick roundup of fun camps with availability over the next few weeks. If you are interested in a particular camp, please check the program finder regularly, as we fill openings on a first come, first served basis.

We invite you to opt in to our camp interest email list. We'll send capacity updates and a reminder to check for openings for your preferred week. Note: We are not able to provide updates on specific camps.

GET HELP PAYING FOR CAMP

The Carlos Huelga Surf Scholarship is available to aspiring young surfers interested in bringing a lifelong passion to life. This scholarship for surf camp was created in loving memory of cherished father, friend, husband and dedicated member of the Ryan Family Y Board of Advisors, Carlos Huelga (1962-2023).

Did you know that several agencies in San Diego County, like the Y and Child Development Associates, can help fully or partially pay for child care or day camp? Learn more here.
