Summer 2020 Update

During this unprecedented and uncertain time, we have been planning and preparing for summer camp as usual with the hopes that we would be able to safely run our summer camp program. For over 100 years, YMCA Camp Loma Mar has strived to maintain the safest possible camp program that we can. In the last few months, we have taken into consideration the recommendations and guidelines the CDC developed for the American Camp Association. We’ve looked at a multitude of options keeping groups to small numbers or separated. In an effort to protect campers and staff and make sure that Camp Loma Mar is positioned to continue serving campers, families, and guests for years to come, we have decided to cancel all summer programming for 2020.

This is a heart-breaking and incredibly difficult decision and was not entered into lightly by our team.  We feel it is important to remain consistent with orders, recommendations, and guidance from government officials and healthcare professions. Due to the many unknowns of this virus, and the trust that so many have put into Camp Loma mar to provide a safe environment for all, we cannot – in good faith – offer the high quality experience that we promise and you expect.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you all again in summer 2021!

Welcome to Camp Loma Mar!

Camp Loma Mar is the East Bay's oldest and best-known overnight camp, operating year-round on over one hundred acres of pristine mountain land next to Pescadero Creek. With extensive activities ranging from archery to arts and crafts and our zip line, we’re proud to offer the ultimate camping experience since 1914 – but it’s our friendly and professional staff members that elevate Camp Loma Mar to something truly wonderful.
