Check-In & Check-Out · Camp Loma Mar

Because we understand that dropping your child off at camp can be a little overwhelming for the entire family, we have outlined the steps for check-in, check-out and our directions to Camp Loma Mar, so that this transition may be as smooth as possible.


For campers taking the bus to Camp Loma Mar, please be at the appropriate YMCA 30 minutes before the bus is scheduled to depart. (see transportation schedule). 

We allow check-ins beginning 30 minutes prior to the listed time. For program quality reasons, we do not allow late arrivals. If your child is not at camp within 30 minutes after Drop Off time, he or she may not be able to attend the session.

In order to check in for camp your child must have the following complete and received in the office two weeks prior to their arrival at camp:

  1. Payment in full
  2. All mandatory forms:

If your camper has any medications (prescription or over-the-counter), make sure the medication is in a Ziploc bag with your campers name on the bag and medications, to turn in at drop off. All campers will be given a lice check & health screen during the check in process.

If you would like to add money to your camper’s camp store account checks and cash will be collected when you check your camper in. We will be unable to take credit cards at this point.

If you have missing or unsigned forms you will be asked to complete them before your child can be admitted to camp.

WE DO NOT ALLOW LATE DROP-OFFS or EARLY PICK-UPS from camp. There are no exceptions. Please plan accordingly.


For youth campers traveling home with their parent/guardian, you may pick up at 10:30 am; for our teens, you may pick up at 10:30 am as well.

You may be asked to show a photo ID. The person picking up your child MUST be listed on the authorized pick-up list on the Health History Form, please be sure to list yourself on this list.

We are in program until just before pick-up times. Please wait in the parking lot until staff arriveand open the gate. Please be on time. Parents more than 15 minutes late picking up their child will incur a $1 per minute late fee.
