We're sorry, but this session is over. The last session end day was Aug 12, 2022 6:00 PM
GREAT SUMMERS START AT THE Y! The YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles has been serving families for over 140 years. Your family can count on Y to ensure your child is having fun in a safe, nurturing environment. The Y offers a variety of day camp programs, throughout the school breaks, to meet the needs of parents and match the interests of our campers. Our Day Camps have inspired kids with countless opportunities to laugh, lead and make lasting friendships. Since your family's safety is our top priority, we have implemented safety protocols that follow state and local guidelines. It is our priority to help your children enjoy a safe and fun program where they can build lasting friendships. At YMCA day camps, children gain a sense of BELONGING, ACHIEVE more and build strong RELATIONSHIPS. Join as a YMCA Member and SAVE! YMCA Day Camp and Child Care programs are open for enrollment to the entire community. A YMCA membership is not required to enroll and participate in a YMCA Day Camp or Child Care program. This summer, we are offering Membership Pricing! JOIN and become a YMCA member and save up to $40 per week, per child, on Summer Day Camp. You can join the Y at https://www.ymcala.org/membership or by emailing Membership@ymcala.org. Please note the following: • In order to receive the discounted membership pricing, you must have a Family Membership at any Los Angeles YMCA branch at the time that you enroll for the day camp, and both the payer (the parent, guardian, etc.) and the child, must be on the membership. If you register for day camp before joining as a member, the YMCA cannot go back and adjust your fees and the YMCA will not issue credits or refunds for the difference in price, of any kind. • You must maintain your family membership through the summer. If you cancel your membership before the end of your child’s last summer session, you will no longer qualify for membership pricing and your account will be adjusted to the non-member price. • The Downey, Santa Clarita and Santa Anita YMCAs have a standard weekly price for day camp (they do not currently offer a member/non-member price differential). YMCA PROGRAM HANDBOOK ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: By registering for this program, the parent, guardian or authorized representative of the enrolled child acknowledges that they have read, understood and agreed to all the policies and procedures for enrollment in this YMCA program.

This includes but is not limited to: weekly themes, weekly planned activities, weekly field trips (including field trips and vendors that come to the Y) and the weekly curriculum. The YMCA makes no guarantees that the day camp schedule will match the advertised schedule, as things may change between the time that the schedule is prepared and the time of program operation. PAYMENT DUE DATES: There are three options to pay for your child’s summer program (options can be done in combination): (1) register online and pay week-by-week, pending space availability, (2) register online and pay in full for all desired weekly sessions, or (3) register online and reserve your child’s space by placing $25 non-refundable deposit for each weekly session you wish to reserve. The remaining balance of the program weekly session fee must then be paid, in full, via a pre-set automatic transfer service (ATS) draft, by the Monday prior to the start of each weekly session.
