About YMCA Camp Loma Mar

YMCA Camp Loma Mar is the birthplace of the raggers program! If you have ever heard of "raggers" or if you are a ragger yourself than you are already apart of the Camp Loma Mar family! If you don't know about the raggers program, it's a self-improvement program that was started at Camp Loma Mar by the famous Thomas Caldwell himself!   

We also have some beautiful famous redwood trees on the property and a massive beautiful creek that will take you on an adventure you won't forget! If your looking to change kids' lives in nature this is the place for you!

Getting Here and Getting Around

It's highly recommended that if you can that you drive to camp so you can have a vehicle on-site and be able to go on your time off as you please!

We will cover the initial transportation by picking you up at the airport and taking you to the airport once the summer is over!

We are pretty remote and don't have any public transport around camp to get to the big city.

If you want to bring a bike you are more than welcome to.

We are like most camps when it comes to getting out of camp and hope that the buddy system works and people are willing to have people in their cars!

We will be doing staff outings and that transportation will be provided. 

For Fun

We have an amazing community of people living at camp every summer. Lots of international staff come in from around the world, so it's a great way to meet people, learn about other cultures, and provide yourself with options for places to stay across the globe.

On days off, adventures in the redwoods nearby or down to the beach (only 12 miles away), trips into San Francisco or Santa Cruz, drive-in movie nights, and many other outings are a big part of the culture.

Fun things to do are easy to find, whether you are looking for an adventure in the outdoors or in the city. We will be doing some staff outings during the summer and getting out of camp as much as possible! 

How to Apply

If you are comfortable being in a male identifying cabin for this upcoming summer please reach out!! The best way to apply is to email me directly! We can discuss the job and set up an interview so I can get to know you better and have you send in a resume! cmackall@ymcaeastbay.org
