The Westchester Family YMCA is currently enrolling youths for its summer day and resident camps.

YMCA day camp is open to boys and girls entering pre-Kindergarten through ninth grade. The camp offers a variety of activities designed around weekly themes, including active games, crafts, swimming, sports, community service, performing arts, and character development.

Each camp is carefully planned for each grade level to allow children to increase self-confidence, celebrate new accomplishments and make new friends, a YMCA spokesperson said.

The organization also offers a variety of specialty camps throughout the summer including Dance and Drama Camp, Basketball Camp and Culinary Camp. For additional information on day camps, Brenda Hernandez at (310) 670-4316 or

Resident camps offer youths a genuine YMCA camp experience for an entire week. Camp Round Meadow, designed for children entering grades three through seven is located in the San Bernardino Mountains and offers a full calendar of activities including horseback riding, mountain biking, archery, and canoeing.

Mammoth Caravan allows youths entering grades six through nine to venture into the wilderness and explore Mammoth Mountain. Days are filled with activities and campers learn leadership development while having an opportunity to make new friends. For children entering grades eight through 11, YMCA offers its West Coast Water Sport Adventure filled with opportunities for water-skiing, wake boarding, and tubing on the California Delta.
