We have exciting news! We are happy to announce that all four Catalyst Camps locations will be open this summer!
Young Set Club (YSC), your favorite summer camp provider for over 35 years; has a new name, we are now Catalyst Camps!
We are proud to make a positive difference in the life of each child, family, and community that we serve. With the same mission, we are excited to share our new name and our updated website. In case you are a visual learner, and many of us are– we hope you enjoy the video about our new name.

“Young set club was a great experience for me growing up. Many of the friends I made at YSC are still my best friends today. It gave me the opportunity to grow socially, make friends, and gave me the tools I needed to succeed as a leader. I got to engage in a variety of great activities, in a safe environment with a wonderful staff that I can only speak highly of.”  — Nick  (Young Setter for life)


Variety is the spice of life! Our youth participants thrive on a combination of indoor and outdoor experiences.  Campers get involved with a variety of daily activities to keep them active and engaged. Whether a participant comes for a week or the entire summer, their experience will be quilted from a cornucopia of choices.

Growth and potential is what we recognize in all of our campers. Each unique camper has something special, unique and vital to contribute to the camp community. We provide an ideal setting for camp leaders to assist our campers in developing their self-confidence and team building skills in a welcoming atmosphere.

Supported by professionals, our summer camp programs are grounded with Continuing Development Inc, now Catalyst Family—California’s premier child development experts for more than 40 years. Staff receive annual training in CPR/First Aid, quality program planning, positive interactions, and develop a family camp culture. 

“Some of my greatest memories and best friendships came from Young Set Club! Summer was always the best time of the year for me because it meant summer camp at YSC. Whether it was swimming in the pool everyday, activities with my group or even making pottery, I was always having a blast. I even learned to swim over summer at Young Set Club thanks to my swim teacher Scott! The counselors became my big brothers and sisters, I looked up to them and they watched out for me. Since I was a very shy girl, summer camp helped me become much more social and I made some best friends there. Years later when I needed my first job I thought of how much fun Young Set Club was as a camper and how much fun it would be as a Counselor. I have been a counselor at Young Set Club for six years now, and these camper/counselor memories will stay with me for life.” Brenna
