Summer Day Camp

 


WHY CHOOSE THE Y?

FRIENDSHIP, ACCOMPLISHMENT, AND BELONGING

SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY

When kids experience Y Camp, they experience something new every day. Like the power of a positive mentor, the confidence that comes from trying (and succeeding!), and the importance of healthy, long-lasting friendships. Of course, they don’t know this – they just think they’re having a whole lot of fun!

From water activities and sports to creative arts, each day is packed with age-appropriate activities, new friends and personal growth. In addition to traditional and specialty camp activities, we are uniquely devoted to physical activity, water safety and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) education. The Y’s environment strives to foster your child’s mind, body and spirit.


DAILY EXPERIENCE

CREATING A SAFE & MEMORABLE CAMP FOR ALL

Staff, as role models, are selected for sound judgment, maturity, experience, enthusiasm and creativity. All staff are interviewed and go through a complete background check prior to being hired. Training occurs before and throughout the summer to ensure attention to detail. All staff are certified in CPR, First Aid and Child Abuse Prevention.

All of our camps focus on encouraging character development through caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. Regardless of which camp you choose, you can be sure that camp staff are committed to developing these traits in campers.

Our average staff to student ratio is 1:12. By selecting a Y camp, you are investing in a safe, fun and memorable experience for you and your child!

If you have any questions, please refer to our Summer Camp Parent Handbook, or reach out to your local Camp Director.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

The Y is committed to providing quality programs to all children and families regardless of their financial circumstances and strives not to turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. We offer financial assistance through our Annual Campaign financial assistance program. Applications are available at any Member Services desk and at ymcawf.org.
