Armed Services YMCA



The Armed Services YMCA Camp Pendleton has been serving the needs of military families stationed aboard Camp Pendleton and surrounding areas since 1943. During the past 76 years we have served an average of 50,000 active duty service members and their families each year. Our goal is to provide support and services such as Deployment Support, Family & Youth Programs, and Assistance for Single Service Members. We provide services for military members and their families that increase their quality of life, strengthen family bonds, and reduce the stresses of military life. 


Armed Services YMCA of Camp Pendleton does not receive state or government funding. We rely almost exclusively on sponsorships, private donations, foundations, and grants to sustain our mission of serving and strengthening military families.

In close coordination with installation commanders and community partners, the Armed Services YMCA tailors our programming to fill the highest priority gaps with low or no-cost programs and services including childcare, emergency food and clothing assistance, education programs, as well as family, youth and teen programs.

Join our donors and with your help, we can help strengthen military families.


A lot has changed for service members since we opened our doors 79 years ago. By making a Planned Gift, you can ensure that no matter what the future holds for service men, women, and families the Armed Services YMCA Camp Pendleton will be there to support them. 

A planned gift allows you to plan ahead of time to include the Armed Services YMCA Camp Pendleton in your will or estate. For many, this is a way to make a transformative contribution with generational impact!
