From games and sports to arts and crafts to outdoor adventures to science and technology, YMCA day camp experience offers kids the chance to learn new things and enjoy new adventures.

OUR PROMISE TO PARENTS - Your kids will be safe, make new friends, learn new skills and most of all, have fun! 

Whether you choose one week or all summer, YMCA Day Camp fits your schedule and provides fun and enriching activities for your child.

Day Camp provides an exciting setting for your children to explore the outdoors. Quality staff will guide them through a summer of discovery as they explore the world around them. Weekly themes allow campers to learn more about the world through art, sporting, nature and character development activities.

Campers work together in many activities which lead to the development of teamwork skills, leadership skills, and lifelong friendships. In addition, campers gain an understanding of the YMCA's character development values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Join us this summer for all of the fun!
