The curious case of the Los Altos YMCA of Long Beach

You tend to think of the YMCA as an organization supportive of schools and education. So why is the Los Altos YMCA of Long Beach (California) sponsoring an event that will cause about 100 kids to miss school?

The YMCA Adventure Guides' trip to Camp Fox on Catalina Island kicks off when the boat leaves at noon on Friday. The kids will need to be at the dock at 11 a.m., so they'll miss a whole day of school or close to it.  In case you're wondering: This is not a school-authorized trip.

Why not just leave after school gets out? Good question.
