Elementary School Day Camps

Empowering Our Community through Youth Development

The Y’s Elementary School Day Camps are a place for children to learn, grow and thrive! Our program provides a safe and fun environment for your child throughout the summer. Beat the Florida heat and join us for summer fun! The exciting, interactive curriculum includes indoor and outdoor games, weekly field trips, on-site guests, arts and crafts, and so much more! Campers will learn the values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith through camp themes that change each week. If your child loves to play, learn, make new friends and do something different and exciting each week, this is the perfect camp for them.

You cannot register your child for multiple camp sessions that take place during the same week.
