Downtown Oakland Summer Day Camp Photo 02

Downtown Oakland YMCA Day Camps offer children positive developmental experiences and encourages them to forge bonds with each other and with staff while building confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age. Day campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong healthy living. Today, day camp is more vital than ever, with an increased emphasis on child safety, learning traditions, personal values and social skills.

Fall & Winter Break Camps - Coming Soon


Our camp is an exciting, safe community for your children to explore the outdoors, build self-esteem, develop interpersonal skills and make lasting friendships and memories. Swimming, art & crafts, group games and exciting trips will pack the  day with unforgettable experiences for campers of all ages.
