Adventure Clubs At Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA
The Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA in Encinitas is proud to offer Adventure Clubs — Adventure Clubs offer a unique experience for parents and their children (see age categories below) to enjoy outdoor weekend camping experiences at some of the best camping spots in Southern California! The monthly campouts will take you to deserts, mountains and beaches. Your weekends will include many fun activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, campfire skits, songs, pinewood derby races, crafts, bead trading, event patches and more.
The Adventure Clubs season runs from September to June, and most calendars include one campout per month (excluding December). You may join any time during the season. This program is designed to nurture relationships between parent and child - you will make friends and memories that will last a lifetime! You will treasure this bonding time with your child during your time in Adventure Clubs.
Each Adventure Club offers a variety of activities, including games, crafts, songs, stories, skits and 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.
The Annual Club joining fee is FREE if you have a YMCA Family Membership. The Annual Club joining fee for Non YMCA Family Members is $100 for your first club, and $60 for your second Club. All Annual Club child registrations are FREE. Please make sure to register both yourself and your child in the Club with you!
