Our Camp Experience
With more than 100 years of camping experience, YMCA camps are a safe and nurturing place where children build self esteem, leadership skills, and a sense of responsibility for themselves and the world around them.
Accredited by the American Camp Association, our YMCA camps meet the highest standards in nearly 300 areas, including health, safety, personnel, transportation, and facilities.
Your child will find the confidence for creative self-expression through songs, art, physical activities, new friendships, and new adventures. We offer more than just nonstop fun. Your child will learn how to apply time, talent, and energy toward a caring, honest, respectful, and responsible life.
We are caring, competent, and experienced. Our training includes camp safety, activity planning, CPR, First Aid, and more, making your child’s experience both safe and fun.
My son was very anxious about attending camp, and after the first day he informed us that he “Loves it!” Now, when I wake him up in the morning, he’ll ask if it’s a camp day. When I tell him it is, there’s a loud “yes!” with a fist pump. Thank you for making camp a good place to be.
Camp Registration Information
Children younger than 6 years old will be permitted to attend camp ONLY if they have completed a year of Kindergarten/TK. Please refer to each camp for more specific age requirements.
Registration and Membership
Everyone is welcome to participate in YMCA camps! If you are not currently a member, there is a $40 Program Membership fee in order to participate in camps. This fee entitles your camper to an individual program membership and is good for one calendar year. It also entitles you to discounts on other YMCA programs.
Camper Health Information
All camper Health History & Medical Release forms are due on the FIRST day of camp. Please turn them in at the camp site your child is attending. Due to American Camp Association regulations, a copy of your child’s immunization record is required. Also, to best serve your child, please inform our staff of any allergies or special health conditions that may exist.
The YMCA offers reduced rates for income-eligible families who wish to participate in our camping programs. Eligibility forms must be completed & approved prior to enrollment. Please allow 7-10 days for this process. To apply or for more information please email email@example.com.

In order to maintain high quality camp programs, we have established a minimum and maximum number of campers per camp. The YMCA reserves the right to cancel a program due to insufficient enrollment.
PLEASE RETAIN YOUR RECEIPTS FOR TAX PURPOSES. We are unable to run a report at tax time. The Sonoma County Family YMCA’s tax ID number is 94-1265049. You may also access this info in your Daxko account, after logging in.
We will refund camp fees less the deposit or equivalent if paid in full for cancellations made prior to the start of camp. A written refund request is required before a refund will be provided. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processed refunds. No refunds or credits will be issued for missed days at camp, for cancellations made after start of camp or for campers suspended or expelled from camp. In case of an exception due to illness or injury, please provide a physician’s statement.
If your plans change and you need to transfer to a different session, we will be glad to accommodate you if a new session is available. Please note the following policies:
- Transfers must be requested in writing at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the camp session.
