The North Suburban YMCA Summer Camp delivers the ultimate in variety, flexibility, and fun for kids in pre-K through junior high. Located at the Y's spacious campus in Northbrook, NSYMCA camp programs offer a warm, supportive environment with experienced, highly-qualified staff.
In 2018, the North Suburban Y is expanding its special interest camp offerings in exciting new ways. Young musicians can share their talents in Rock Band or Glee Camp, while budding chefs can explore new recipes in Cooking Camp. Kids with interests in art, science, digital media, dance, and gymnastics will all find special options to capture their attention. For children who like an ever-changing experience, tradition general interest camps combine games, swimming, crafts, and field trips to deliver the variety they crave all summer long. Campers take full advantage of the Y's gyms, outdoor sports fields, art and dance studios, and playgrounds. Most programs offer recreational swimming and lessons with professional Y instructors in the Y's indoor pool.
In total, the NSYMCA offers over 40 options to meet the needs of every child. Most importantly, all Y camps offer fun, active experiences that promote friendships, confidence, and curiosity. CIT programs for older campers develop leadership skills to prepare them for future roles as camp counselors.
Parents also appreciate the flexibility and value offered by NSYMCA camps. Campers can sign up for sessions by the week, accommodating family schedules and allowing children to explore a variety of programs. The Y offers partial week options and has half day and full day camps, before- and after-camp childcare, and transportation from Northbrook summer schools for afternoon camps. Payment plans and financial assistance are available for families in need.
All NSYMCA camp activities are run by highly trained counselors under the leadership of the Y's experienced professional staff. Camp Director Angelica Schab brings over 10 years of camp management experience to her role. NSYMCA Early Childhood Director Shannon Cartier, Visual Arts Director Cathie Winnie and Performing Arts Director Shannon Mundorf oversee the camps in their areas of expertise.
Registration is now open for all North Suburban YMCA summer camps. Check out the complete camp brochure at www.NSYMCA.org or call 847 272 7250 for more information.
My 8 year old son was bullied by the Child Care staff in the X Zone. It was staffed with teenagers who are not qualified to watch children. The staff turned off his game while he was playing it, called him a dog and a baby, and threw balls at him until he screamed and cried. My husband was a few feet away and no one came to get him. Howard Schultz, the CEO, made the decision to continue to allow these teenagers to supervise children. My child was bullied by the teenagers, and then bullied again by the adults who blamed him. I do not believe children are safe at this facility, and I hope you learn from my child's hard lesson. Years later, my child is still being treated for the trauma he experienced.
