The Y continues to be a leader in childcare and education and we have been committed to meeting the needs of the Greater Long Beach Community. As school districts continue to alter their plans in light of the current pandemic, we realize that parents need our support now more than ever.

Y Camp Academy is an in-person day camp dedicated to providing a safe, healthy, and clean environment to support children in their e-learning while keeping them active and engaged throughout the day.

To help your child stay on task and support our children’s academic, physical, and mental health the Y has created a fun, safe, controlled environment in which your child can continue their educational journey with the support of a great team. Your child will benefit from:

  • Lower group size than a traditional classroom setting at school
  • Peer-to-peer interaction
  • An infusion of physical activities and fun brain breaks every day to support the body, mind, and spirit!
  • Independent reading
  • Students will focus on school assignments during program hours


  • Hours of Operation: 6:30 am to 6:00 pm
  • Program Hours: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • Extended Hours: 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
  • Begins: August 17 - until further notice
  • Weekly Rate: $230/weekly (extended and program hours are included in weekly rate)
  • A nutritious morning snack and afternoon supper is provided.
  • Full day camp programs require children to bring a sack lunch.
  • We accept third party agencies, such as, Children's Home Society and Crystal Stairs


Kids will be ready for fun. They will be ready for best friends and new friends. They will be ready for adventure and swimming pools and silly games in the sunshine. They will be ready for camp songs, camp chants, and camp crafts. They will be ready for new experiences like trips to the beach, arts & crafts, or jumping into the pool. They will be ready for it all.

We will be ready too.

The Los Cerritos Y is patiently waiting for summer camp, sports, swim, and fun!

Y summer programming is still scheduled to begin the week of June 15, 2020 as originally planned. That being said, these are very fluid times so this could adjust depending on the evolution of social distancing guidelines. Regardless, we are already preparing for summer and will adjust programming as needed to align with CDC and governmental guidelines.

Should you desire to save your summer spot, that option is available to you now. However, with sensitivity to the current state of affairs we will not be requiring any payment or deposits until we provide you with further information in May. We hope this added flexibility will aid your family in navigating the uncertainty of these times while still trying to plan for the future.
