We have shaped the lives of thousands of campers. While most Christian camps on the West Coast offer only weekend or one-week long programs, YSSC’s two-week long sessions allow more time for campers to feel at home and benefit from our goal of helping them grow in character, relationships, skills and faith. This is accomplished through our unique blend of traditional and adventure activities, creative fun and positive challenge, and especially through interaction with a gifted, nurturing and enthusiastic staff.
Our staff to camper ratio is 1 to 2. Cabin counselors, boat drivers, backpack guides, healthcare staff, food service and facilities staff are not just “hired.” After an extensive interview process, they are background checked and provided with a comprehensive training before joining the YSSC family. These college students and graduates empower campers by demonstrating the qualities we strive for campers to gain. They are the hallmark of our program and why our campers return year after year.
YSSC is affectionately known as “The Home of the World’s Greatest Campers!” We love our campers and consider it a privilege to care for each one. We play hard and laugh hard together. Campers make friends and connect with new role models. They take on new challenges and master skills that bolster their confidence. Kids are awed by the beauty of nature and discover creativity within themselves. At camp, they problem solve, develop resiliency, care for others and open up in new ways. They learn about God’s love through experiences that come about as we live in community.
We hope YSSC’s purposeful program is a match for your family. Our website and brochure describe more about our program, but we would love to talk with you personally! Please give us call and get to know us better.
