 - Day Camp / Sports Camp / Specialty Camp 


YMCA camp programs offer a fun and unique experience that gives children and tweens the opportunity to have their best summer ever, by meeting new friends, exploring nature, discovering new interests, being physically active and creating memories that last a lifetime.

Day Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.  Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.

Day Camps at the YMCA run on a weekly basis, Monday through Friday, for children ages 5-12 years.  You can pick and choose which weeks you would like to attend; you can come just one week or the whole summer!  Camp is from 9 am -4 pm daily, with drop off starting at 7 am and pick up ending at 6 pm.

Looking for something different this summer? Try one of our Specialty or Sports Camps.  We have something for everyone!
