Summer Camp


If you are unsure what to do with your child all summer long, please consider sending them to the YMCA summer camp programs. We are ACA accredited and only hire staff who are all CPR, first aid and water safety certified. All of our staff work year-round in the after school program in Santa Clara at various sites. 

We have a variety of camps to offer, and all our camps include swimming and field trips weekly. Our Brochure will be available by May or sooner. Please keep checking our website by visiting for our summer camp brochure.

YMCA Attendance Policy


The YMCA After School Program has a very strict attendance policy this year and we will only be enrolling students and families who are able to abide by this policy. We are an After School Enrichment Program and not a day care, we have certain rules we need to follow in order to receive funding.  Our rules for attendance are as followed:

  1. Students must participate M-F, this mean if they attended school and are enrolled in our program, they must be present at the YMCA from the time school lets out until 6:00 pm. No child will be allowed to have part time hours.
  2. Parallel programs are only allowed if they are run by the school.  Outside activities will no long be allowed on a regular basis.
  3. Children must be signed out daily by a parent unless the appropriate forms are completed.

Families who are not abiding by our attendance policies will be dropped from our program. If you have any questions regarding our attendance policy, please contact the director at (408) 590-6178


*** Please remember to call (408) 590-6178 if your child is present at school but is not attending the YMCA
