Senior Team Leaders Make a Difference!
TYM offers 5-day summer camps for children entering 3rd to 6th grade. TYM Camp is a place where children really experience the exhilaration of a community of youth creating new memories together through adventure, games & friendships — old and new. Because every child needs and deserves lots of love and attention we run our camps with small cabin teams that match 2-3 Team Leaders (aka camp counselors) with 6-8 campers to form a family that adventures together as a cabin team.
During the day teams play games, face other cabins for challenges, make arts and crafts and have fun! Each camp day we also gather all the teams for skits, music & wacky games at Club time where the campers also receive the message: God loves you – no matter what.
The volunteer staff team is integral to caring for kids in a dramatic way that allows campers to discover more about themselves, others and God’s amazing creation. If you love kids and love God, TYM Camp is the place where those two loves come together.

High Impact Summer Camps for At Risk Kids — since 1991
Today’s Youth Matter is a Bay Area Christian organization operating summer camps for disadvantaged, urban kids from 8-12 years old. The children we serve live in poverty, with a legacy of trauma, which makes them vulnerable to a multitude of risk factors that derails their prospect for success. As an organization, TYM is dedicated to changing the life trajectory of these at risk youth to take them from where they are to where God intends them to be. We call this the “Transformational Journey”.
Camp is critical step in this journey; thus, kids’ lives are dramatically influenced and will have an impact on future decisions by the quality of our volunteers. Christian leadership is a vital role that requires volunteers to help us translate God’s love for them. Our selection process reflects a commitment to our vision and values.
