Camp Hero is a week long day camp that allows military youth to share common experiences and receive academic enrichment, all while making friends and having fun. Your child will have the opportunity to build self-esteem, address the challenges they face as a military child,  and make summer memories that are sure to last a lifetime. These opportunities will take place in a classroom setting as well as in the community through a fun-filled Day Out field trip each week to a unique San Diego scenic spot. Day Out Field Trips take place on the Thursday of camp and will include a day trip to visit to either YMCA Camp Surf or to a second location, to be announced. Additional youth will accompany the campers to a unique location in San Diego.

Camp will take place Monday through Friday from 8:00am-4:30pm. Campers will be assigned to camp weeks by the Armed Services YMCA staff. Request for particular weeks cannot be accommodated. This process ensures that campers are evenly distributed and we are able to serve as many families as possible!
