Ages 11-16

Outdoor Adventure Camp: Ages 11-15

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

YMCA Camp Santa Maria’s Outdoor Adventure Camp has been carefully planned for campers who are fascinated with nature and outdoor activities and want to learn many different skills while at camp.

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. These campers do all of their activities on our property but will spend a majority of their time at camp away from main camp. OACs will get to climb rocks, backpack, spend time on our lake and learn wilderness survival skills and orienteering.
