TRADITIONAL CAMP

Ages 7-14

YMCA Camp Santa Maria’s traditional camp has been carefully crafted to provide the quintessential sleepaway camp experience. Campers will have the opportunity to slip ‘n’ slide, climb rocks, pour slime on each other and drink bug juice all week.

During their one-week session, traditional campers participate in daily fun activities that we call “skill tracks,” which are designed to build each camper’s confidence and competence in specific activities. Skill tracks may include rock climbing, hiking and exploration, stand-up paddleboarding, nature, mountain biking, wilderness skills, drama and fine arts. We offer these standard skill tracks but will also create theme-specific skill tracks each week. In the past, we’ve had offerings such as Flying School, Search for Magical Creatures, How to be a Ninja, Stand-Up Comedy and Sasquatch Watching. Needless to say, our campers have FUN!
