Bear Valley YMCA Camp


Bear Valley YMCA Camp has been a destination for summer adventure for more than 80 years. At Bear Valley, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience the wonders of the High Sierra in a safe and caring environment. Located near Emigrant Gap, Bear Valley provides kids with rewarding and life changing experiences. Read below for camping opportunities for ages 7-9 (Younger Camp), 8-13 (Traditional Camp), ages 14-16 (Counselor in Training), and all ages (Family Camp).






Thank You Raley's!


During this pandemic, the stress and toll on the mental health of children has been a concern of many. Thanks to generous funding and support from

Raley's, the YMCA of Superior California will be investing in tailored mental health curriculum and trainings for our Early Learning Childcare staff, creating “Zen Zones” at each childcare location with calming tools for children to decompress when needed, and adding technology that will allow childcare staff to communicate more effectively with the child’s caregivers to create a cohesive, supportive environment while the child is at childcare and at home. This programming will launch at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. THANK YOU RALEYS!
