Welcome to Gold Country YMCA!

At the Y we provide a safe, nurturing, and fun environment to engage the interests of all kids. Our adventures are non-stop and our activities reinforce the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. 

Summer at the Y creates an exciting, safe environment for kids to have an unforgettable summer of fun. While they are taking part in unique experiences and adventures, they are also building self-esteem, developing interpersonal skills and making lasting friendships.

To help mitigate the risks of COVID-19 transmission, your children will interact with the same group of 14 kids during the week. Our staff of counselors are trained in the most up to date safety precautions. 

*All unpaid balances from other programs must be paid prior to registering.

Y-ASSIST: At the YMCA of Superior California, we believe that everyone - regardless of age, income, or background - should have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Because, we believe that opportunity shouldn't be a privilege. Click here to apply for financial assistance.

REGISTRATION NOTE: When enrolling for Summer at the Y, all Y-Kids will be placed on a wait-list. Due to COVID restrictions, the directors have to create cohorts to keep the same children together each week during camp. Once these cohorts are created the director of your camp will start adding children from the wait-list. Y-Kids will be added from the wait-list in the order they were placed on it. Please give our directors time to get these cohorts together. If you were added from the wait-list you will receive an email confirming you have gotten into the program. At that point you can login to Daxko and make the $25 registration fee and pay the $25 deposit for each week you are enrolled in.
