A summer at YMCA Camp Santa Maria is a life-shaping experience that encourages a spirit of community, exploration and adventure. Our friendly, qualified and passionate staff strive to create a safe environment and a community where caring, cooperation and understanding prevail. Our goal is to send campers home feeling strong in who they are, the relationships they have made and the skills they have gained. YMCA Camp Santa Maria provides a rare balance of fun, challenge, responsibility, adventure and education that defines every camper’s day.
