At the Y, a quality camp experience is much more than running around outdoors and going home tired – it is a chance for your child to discover new adventures, and make new friends and memories. Each week of camp offers different specialties, sports and aquatics programming jammed packed with activities, games, music, field trips, water fun and so much more! Camp is active, the way summer should be! Campers also swim daily and water safety is an important component of our day camp and each camper will be swim tested before they are permitted in the pool. Our goal is to teach campers values including caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith, to improve campers’ reading skills with exposure to books and learning activities, and to improve camper’s health through nutrition and exercise. Enroll your child in a YMCA summer day camp! It is a guaranteed investment in your child’s future.
