Traditional Day Camp or our Specialty Camps at the McIntosh YMCA share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too!
Day Camps at the McIntosh YMCA are on a weekly basis, Monday through Friday, for children ages 5-13 years. You can pick and choose which weeks you would like to attend; you can come just one week or the whole summer!
Give your children a lesson of a lifetime. When kids learn to swim they not only gain strength and confidence, but also the ability to be safe in and around water. Drowning is one of the leading causes of unintentional death in ages 1 to 14. Being surrounded by water in McIntosh County, it is even more important that kids learn to swim to prevent accidents from happening and to keep kids strong, happy and healthy.
Achievers participated in the 2015 State YMCA Georgia United Nations Assembly (GUNA). GUNA is a simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate teen attendees about civics, effective communication, globalization and multilateral diplomacy. During this conference, students take on roles as ambassadors and participate in a simulated session of an intergovernmental organization.
The YMCA of Coastal Georgia’s teens did a fantastic job not only preparing for GUNA but executing their presentation as well. This year Douglas Auguste, from the McIntosh County YMCA, brought back the “Outstanding Senior Male Delegate Award”. This award is given to a delegate who exemplifies effective civic engagement throughout the three day conference. In addition, Antonio Mabry & Davon Hill also of McIntosh YMCA was awarded “Best Global Village Display”.
While preparing our youth for college readiness/workforce development, the YMCA Achievers program builds character, develops positive self esteem and fosters future leadership skills. This program is open to all teens to ensure that every young adult has the chance to enhance skills that will help them succeed after high school. The Y’s Annual Campaign funds this program to ensure that every teen has this opportunity. It is through donations to the Annual Campaign, that the Y is able to support youth in our communities.
Pryme Tyme is that special time at the end of school for children whose parents are at work. The YMCA can make this a great time to grow, to play and to be with friends. Pryme Tyme is held at Todd Grant Elementary School. Hours are from the end of school until 6:00 p.m.
Pryme Tyme programs are not just supervised playgrounds. We strive to maintain a ratio that provides plenty of individual attention as well as small group activity.
