MAKING AN IMPACT

The Armed Service YMCA of Camp Pendleton believes that all service members and their families deserve support, enrichment, recognition, security, and opportunities to improve their family bonds, resiliency, and health/wellness. We provide programs and services designed to alleviate stress, assist with life challenges, and increase the morale and welfare of our nation’s heroes, enabling them to better focus on their mission of service.

The Armed Services YMCA of Camp Pendleton coordinates with local installation leadership to ensure a network of support for military families stationed on Camp Pendleton. This collaboration allows us to identify and address gaps in services that pose a hardship to service members and their families—hardships that can negatively affect mission readiness.
