With a focus on developing the potential of kids, the Los Altos Family YMCA American Camping Association (ACA) accredited Day Camp Program ensures your child will have a safe, positive environment to play, learn, and grow when school is out. Our activities, which range from leadership development to sports and arts, give your child the opportunity to become a confident kid today and a healthier, happier grown-up tomorrow.

Stimulating summer programs will help your child stay on track for the school year, field trips will enable new experiences, group activities will build stronger interpersonal skills, while swimming and sports will keep them active in spirit, mind, and body.

The other field trip day includes visits to places such as California Science and Space Center, Aquarium, Zoo, Knott's Berry Farm, Queen Mary, Boomers, Skyzone, and the Discovery Cube.
