Children need more than mere babysitting during the summer.  They need to be challenged, stimulated, supported and they need to have fun.  They have skills and talents to develop, energy to use and huge amounts of creativity.  At YMCA Day Camp we help kids grow.  We have fun.  We help kids make friends and we help them learn more about themselves and the world around them.

YMCA Day Camp is an adventure for kids.  Each week offers a new theme and includes a variety of activities, including, arts and crafts, swimming, singing, group games, environmental activities and special events.

In addition to the fun and excitement, YMCA Day Camp also provides opportunities for kids to develop self-esteem, learn to work and play together, develop an appreciation for the environment, learn new skills and develop the values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Faith that will last a lifetime.

Day Camp for All

While our fees are based on the cost of providing each program, we believe that all children should have an opportunity to experience summer day camp.  Participants are expected to pay their fair share; when Strong Kids financial assistance dollars are available, the YMCA will assist any family or individual who wishes to participate but who may have difficulty affording the fee.
