YMCA Camp Loma Mar

South Bay



Located in the Northern tip of the Santa Cruz Mountains, YMCA Camp Loma provides a beautiful and remote location for your wedding celebration and is only a short drive from the bright lights of the Bay Area. You and your guests will fall in love with the peaceful, quiet, and relaxing atmosphere of Camp Loma. Fresh air, gigantic redwoods, and flowing creeks set the scene for your whimsically romantic nuptials. Declare your love in the camp’s “Chapel,” a gorgeous ceremony site nestled in a natural cathedral of redwood trees with amphitheater seating. The celebration continues indoor with a grand reception in the Longhouse Lodge or Legacy Lodge. The natural and rustic inspired lodges are large spaces perfect for dinner and dancing. You and your guests can enjoy a buffet meal tailored to your specifications. Then, end the night at the Campfire Bowl, a large outdoor amphitheater with stage, electricity and lights, perfect for an after party celebration or an alfresco cocktail reception and dance party with live entertainment.
