Summer camp 2016
June 22-August 26
Mission Valley YMCA has been offering outstanding summer camps for more than 30 years. We believe that every young person is a unique individual with his/her own rate of development. Our goal is to introduce children and teens to as many new experiences as possible and help each child feel confident and secure in a fun, safe camp environment. YMCA day camps challenge children to grow in imagination, creativity, self-directed initiative, and leadership.
We are dedicated to changing the lives of our campers by creating friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. All of our YMCA day camps have been voluntarily accredited by the American Camp Association. Accreditation identifies those programs which offer a solid foundation of health, safety and program quality. Our day camps exceed the highest standards in the camp industry — solid proof of our accountability, credibility and commitment to providing the best summer experience. For more information regarding ACA standards please visit www.acacamps.org.
