YMCA of Glendale – Camp Fox

Updated: April 8, 2005

Camp Fox is owned and operated by the YMCA of Glendale. We are a traditional YMCA camp that has a long rich history since 1926. We are located twenty-six miles from the mainland city of Long Beach, Camp Fox provides visitors with an isolated, island retreat. Clean ocean water and gentle waves lap near camper cabins while rock walls and towering mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to camp. Rental groups visit camp spring, fall, and winter for weekend getaways. Arriving on Friday, groups enjoy an archery range, field sports, an extensive Frisbee golf course, and a low and high ropes adventure course. Before Sunday afternoon, parents and children alike will experience ocean kayaking, snorkeling through kelp beds, row boating, fishing, and practicing their favorite dive from the pier. Seven day camping opportunities are available or children ages 8-17 during the summer season. Campers participate in hiking, water tubing, arts & crafts as well as crazy team competitions and hilarious campfires. Adventerours campers can travel outside of camp on overnight kayak safaris, backpacking treks and long hikes into the interior of the island.
