At Element YMCA Camp, you can skate the day away, or take advantage of the wide range of activities.
Some of the top programming includes:
THE BRILLIANT SEQUOIA LAKE
Launch off a ramp into the lake, go boating in the Element canoe, or have a swim watched over by a certified lifeguard. Fishing is also available with provided tackle.
Learn the basics of wilderness survival (shelter, water, fire, food). Through these ancient skills, campers will learn to be more aware of the world they live in and take home knowledge hard to acquire elsewhere.
Make your own mini skateboard. Learn the process from start to finish with professional equipment and instruction.
If you are just getting started or an advanced skater, this program will give you the guidance needed to take your skating to the next level.
