Groups Retreats and Family Retreats at Raintree

We are very excited to plan our return to youth camping at YMCA Raintree Ranch. The California Department of Health recently announced that overnight camps will be permitted starting in summer. For health and safety, COVID procedures will be in place (masks, distancing, health screening, sanitation).

Camp will continue building friendships and fun in the great outdoors. As we bring our camps back up to full speed we look forward to planning your groups next adventure here at Camp Marston. We appreciate your patience as we want to give each request the proper attention it deserves. Please contact us by emailing Rich Krudner [email protected] with your contact information. Hope to see you soon!

With so many unknowns surrounding COVID-19 and its effects on camp operations this year, we created a FAQ page to answer your most commonly asked questions. This page will be updated frequently as the situation evolves. Now more than ever, our campers will need the meaningful social connections that camp provides. Stick with us as work to ensure a safe, healthy and fun camp experience.
