We can't wait to spend a few days with you this summer! The Family Camp schedule is designed to offer your family time to relax and enjoy our beautiful Redwood forest while maintaining social distancing from others. We practice “Challenge by Choice” at Camp Loma Mar, and we sincerely hope you will take opportunities with your family to try new things and meet new people.
To ensure you are well prepared for camp, we ask that you thoroughly review our Family Camp Packet. This packet has everything you need to know about getting to camp, sleeping arrangements, meal service, and much more. We hope you take a look and keep it handy for reference.

We will only register 20 families maximum per weekend during the summer. This will keep a manageable amount of folks on site accessing our restroom and shower facilities. During the weekend, we will offer archery, rock climbing, zip line, campfire, night hikes, tie dye, pool (not 100% certain yet), and arts and crafts. We border Memorial Park and Pescadero Creek County Park. We also have two beach areas along Pescadero Creek that are available for you and your family to enjoy. Those beach areas will not have any lifeguards present, so you will be there on your own accord.
We are required to follow guidelines that currently pertain to restaurants. That means we can cook and provide all the delicious camp food we love, but a member of your family will need to pick up your meals and take them away from the dining hall to eat. We have plenty of picnic tables around camp, so having a family picnic at every meal will be tons of fun!
We have to follow the same restrictions as above. We will have coffee out in the morning and Y staff will need to serve it to you.
Our bath houses and restrooms are going to be our primary focus area for sanitizing. We plan to clean each restroom/bath house three times a day while guests are present. Having families spread out in cabins between both villages will minimize the amount of foot traffic in each restroom facility.
We will also rely on families to keep their areas clean and take necessary precautions while using facilities. We will have hand sanitizer at all higher traffic areas such as archery, restrooms, dining hall pickup window, rock wall, and zip line. Families will be asked to maintain social distancing between other families. It’s encouraged that families wear face coverings when interacting with other families. Families will also be required to wear face coverings when coming into contact with any YMCA staff person. All YMCA staff will be required to wear face coverings when interacting with families, cleaning, and preparing food.
During the week between weekends, we will do a thorough cleaning of every cabin that was used as well as all areas of camp.
You can register online here or fill out the registration form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not charge any family until we have written approval from the county to move forward.
We received a small grant for families who need assistance with the cost of camp. If this is you, please reach out to email@example.com for the application. If your family is in a position to help sponsor a family in need, please email as well. Any help we can provide the camp community we will do. There are a lot of folks out there in tough situations at the moment and we want to be here to help.
