Adventure Clubs At Joe and Mary Mottino Family YMCA

The Joe and Mary Mottino Family YMCA in Oceanside is proud to offer Adventure Clubs — a place where families become an explorers and guides, embarking together on an amazing journey of discovery and growth.

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 Clubs club a memory to last a lifetime.

Each Adventure Clubs 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.
