ADVENTURE CAMPS

Ages 11-16

All campers in Adventure Camps will stay in canvas tents or yurts while at main camp and in camping tents while in the backcountry or away from camp.

Outdoor Adventure Camp: Ages 11-15

YMCA Camp Santa Maria’s Outdoor Adventure Camp has been carefully planned for campers who are fascinated with nature and prefer a more rustic camp experience.

Our Outdoor Adventure Camp campers spend their week learning a little bit of a lot of outdoor skills. These campers will be divided based on grade level and age. They will do all of their activities on our property but will spend a majority of their time in our backcountry campsites. OACs will get to climb rocks, backpack, spend time on our lake and learn wilderness survival skills and orienteering.

Member rate: $918

Non-Member rate: $993

Travel Adventure Camp: Ages 13-16

We have revamped our adventure camps for ages 13 to 16, and we are thrilled to unveil Travel Adventure Camps, featuring one-week and two-week trips for adventure-seeking, outdoor-loving campers. From the Pacific Ocean to the peaks of Colorado, we are ready to help young adults develop confidence in nature, connect with their camp community and experience tons of new activities and adventures.

Travel Adventure campers will focus on developing technical skills while in the wilderness and building leadership skills in a supportive, small group setting. These experiences emphasize communication, wilderness skills, "Leave No Trace" concepts and backcountry traveling skills. When on camp, the Travel Adventurers stay in our Tent Village. The Travel Adventure campers may take part in activities with traditional campers when they are on camp. These programs are designed for campers who want to learn a lot about their chosen activity and go on extended outings from camp.

One week trip member rate: $994

One week trip non-member rate: $1069
