The health and safety of our community are our number one priority.
We are very excited to plan our return to youth camping at YMCA Camp Marston. The California Department of Health recently announced that overnight camps will be permitted this summer.
We are awaiting the specific operating guidelines from the County Health Officials.
For now, here is what we are planning:
Registrations for Marston & Raintree will be launched online in mid-April, stay tuned.
For health and safety, COVID procedures will be in place (masks, distancing, health screening, sanitation). Summer camp will continue building friendships and fun in the great outdoors.
Like so many other businesses, our staffing levels have been reduced and those who remain are currently working from home. Phone calls have temporarily been halted however we encourage you to reach out to us via the email address listed below. We appreciate your patience with response times.
For general questions, billing, and registration please call the YMCA call center at (858) 514-4411
OVERNIGHT CAMP PAYMENTS: For any fees paid, including deposits, we are providing three choices:
If you would like to keep a voucher with us you don't need to do anything at this time. For donations and refunds please email [email protected]
Unfortunately, we do not have governmental health and safety guidelines or permission that would allow us to run our traditional group retreat programs this fall for mixed groups that are not in the same household. All fall group retreats have been canceled and group leaders have been notified. We DO HAVE permission from state and local public health authorities to offer family camp programs at Camp Surf and Camp Marston. These programs are accommodations only, no food service or activities provided, but they offer an amazing opportunity for families within the same household to socially distance and enjoy our awesome outdoor environments.
All Outdoor Education programs at Surf, Marston, and Raintree will be starting in Fall 2021
Overnight Camp registration for Summer 2021 will open in mid-April once we have permission and health and safety guidelines from state and local health officials to operate. Once registration is open we will be announcing it on our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram).
It remains our mission to serve and support the health and well-being of our community. For full updates on the YMCA of San Diego County's community efforts please visit our official COVID-19 update webpage.
We are beyond grateful to the members of our community — our alumni, guests, camper families, volunteers, and staff — who have recognized the challenges that crises like this can pose to a human services organization regardless of personal hardships that they may be facing. For those that are able and interested, please make a gift here. THANK YOU for your support of children and families during these uncertain times.

These are challenging times, but we remain optimistic for the future. As we approach 100 years of overnight camping in San Diego County, we remain confident in our ability to move and adapt to changing conditions. Knowing how much camp means to our kids, staff, and families, we look forward to opening our programs!
