IMPORTANT UPDATE: DROP OFF/PICK UP: Due to paving happening at Barranca Elementary, we have changed our drop off and pick up procedures.

Drop off - If you arrive between 7:30-8:30am, please use the the loop that is NOT ON LOMA Del ESCOLAR for drop off. This loop entrance will be marked by a ballon attached to a white sign. It is circled on the map displayed beside this text. Y Camp staff will greet you with the sign in sheet and gather groups of children to walk to the gymnasium. If you arrive after 8:30am, please park and walk your child into the gymnasium. Due to the repaving of the parking lot closest to the gymnasium, please park on the street and use the main entrance.

Pick up - Please park on the street, and enter the gymnasium to sign out your child. If you have limited mobility, please arrange accommodations in advance of pick up. 

Please follow these procedures for the safety of every child. The paving is expected to begin and end during the first half of June.

What will my child be doing while at camp?
Playing both inside and outside, experiential learning at five "stations". Stations include science/nature, art, drama, sports skills, and "Fun with Food". They also have time for lunch (provided by you) and snacks (provided by the Y). Some days will feature fun field trips. We will have info and permission slips provided as needed.
