Here at Camarena School, we want to make an incredible difference in our community by volunteering to advocate and fundraise for the South Bay Family YMCA! With so many demands on today’s families, parents need all the support they can get. That’s why child care at the YMCA of San Diego County is about more than just supervising children. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy and trusting relationships, and build self-reliance. No matter the age or needs of your child, we can help you care for them in a way that sets them up for success in life. We offer preschool, early-learning readiness, and before-and-after-school programs for each stage of your child’s development and more. Our trained child-care professionals give every child the safety and structure they need to flourish, including children with special needs. Not every parent can afford to have their child attend these programs. That is why our staff and volunteers come together every year to raise money for our scholarship fund. Please help us reach our goal by making a gift today!

What our Y Does and how you can help:

Each year the Y gives thousands of dollars, donated by people like you, to provide SCHOLARSHIPS to those who need it the most. Your gift provides the resources needed to prevent DROWNING, reduce OBESITY and address POVERTY. Swimming lessons help children learn SAFETY AROUND WATER. Group classes and programs like gymnastics, sports and body pump help participants stay HEALTHY. Before and After School care provides ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT and a SAFE place for parents to leave their children while they work to support their families. Last year our Y raised over $363,000 for our scholarship fund. This year the South Bay Family YMCA has a goal of $390,000 to better serve our growing community. Our school is raising $1,000 to help support this goal. Please help us STRENGTHEN our community by giving a gift TODAY!


Whether it's a one-time contribution or a pledge for a larger gift over the course of the year, know that your generosity is helping our neighbors to learn, grow and thrive at the Y. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being and provides opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.

When you give to the Y, you help move people forward. Your generosity and partnership ensures that no child, family or adult is turned away from the Y due to an inability to pay.
