Camp memories last long beyond the summer. Our children are surrounded by technology, so spending time in active group play and in the great outdoors at a YMCA day camp can open their eyes to the world around them. Our American Camp Association accredited camps allow your child to learn new skills, discover talents, build self-esteem and develop friendships and confidence that will help them grow and succeed throughout their lives. Staff will lead your child through specially designed, unique activities that will build their self-esteem, teach them responsibility, develop their interpersonal skills and encourage habits that promote a healthy lifestyle - all the while creating their own "Y story" filled with fun and friends. Summer will be here before you know it, so register your child today!
Our staff all have more than 40 hours of training before the summer begins, plus all counselors are certified in First Aid, CPR and AED.
Most of our Y day camp programs include instructional and recreational swimming as part of their day camp program.
For over 150 years, the YMCA has been dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children. There is no better place than a Y summer day camp for your child to learn and grow!
