Our Camp

Camp Arroyo is a beautiful residential camp serving children year-round as a place to explore, learn and grow in an ideal outdoor setting. The YMCA of the East Bay is the operator of the camp year-round, offering programs and weekend group rentals for retreats and events. From September to June the YMCA directs an excellent outdoor educational experience that introduces 4th, 5th and 6th graders to important concepts about science, nature and sustainable living. During the summer months, and several weekends throughout the year, the camp is a haven for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to enjoy together, thanks to The Taylor Family Foundation, which funds camps that provide skilled staff and volunteers to create fun-filled, memorable experiences.
