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.
