Thank You for your interest in our beautiful YMCA Camp Arbolado!  


YMCA Camp Arbolado is a year-round camp retreat at 6,500 feet that has been proudly operating for over 90 years. We are located in the awe-inspiring San Bernardino Mountains, 6 miles east of the mountain town of Angelus Oaks and just off of California State Highway 38. We provide the perfect wilderness setting for Summer Camp, Outdoor Education, Weekend Getaways for families and organizations, church and charity groups, and business retreats. The YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility are a cornerstone of all camp operations.

We endeavor for all participants to leave YMCA Camp Arbolado stronger in mind, body, and spirit; ready to tackle the world and their dreams. For those wishing to continue their development with us, our CITs, camp counselors and directors are “grown” through our volunteer staff development program.

Suman Rana is the Executive Camp Director, and has been involved with YMCA Camp Arbolado since 1988. We are proud to say that every Camp Director that has ever worked for Arbolado has been involved with the Camp for at least 15 years.

A variety of plant and animal life at Arbolado provide a world of exploration and wonder within our beautiful 16 acre plot! From Schools to Organizations to Senior Retreats, we welcome all to get unplugged and join us for a Wilderness Adventure! We hope to see you soon at YMCA Camp Arbolado!
