Where Summer Starts
Whether it’s splashing in the pool, exploring nature, learning a new skill, or going on fun field trips, summer camp at the Y provides an opportunity for children to build meaningful relationships and gain important life skills, such as learning the importance of being caring, honest, respectful, and responsible individuals.
Summer camp at the Y provides a variety of activities and adventures beyond traditional day camp, with specialty camps including Sports, Travel, Arts & Theatre, Bounce & Splash, Gymnastics, Mountain Biking, Camp Tahigwa, and overnight resident camp at YMCA Camp Weona.
No matter if it’s day or residential, our Y camps engage youth in enriching activities while fostering a sense of belonging and provide our community’s children with the opportunity for achievement. Our programs are designed to build social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development activities into fun, enriching experiences. Positive developmental experiences help children forge bonds with each other and with staff, building confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age. YMCA camps give young people experiences that last a lifetime by inspiring them for years to come.
Summer camp options offered by the Y include:
At the Y we believe that every child should have the chance to experience camp. The YMCA Annual Campaign provides financial assistance to families within our community who are in need of financial support and may not have the ability to pay the full fee. Financial assistance is determined through a confidential application process and a personal interview with the applicant. Assistance is granted on the basis of financial need resulting from low income, emergency expenses, or other circumstances. Through our annual Earn Your Way to Camp Candy Sale, campers can also contribute toward their camp fees by selling candy bars from January – July. Click here for more information.
