Summer Day Camp
YMCA Day Camp is a curriculum based summer program designed to keep your child active and safe throughout the summer. Character development plays a big role in our camps. Respect, responsibility, honesty and caring are values we use on a daily basis with our campers. You can rest assure that your child will be in a safe and nurturing environment that offers a different activity for him/her to participate in every hour of the day.
The Day Camp curriculum is based on weekly themes and includes arts & humanities, health, wellness & fitness, literacy, STEAM, character development, service-learning and social competence & conflict resolution.
Children will be divided into age appropriate groups and assigned a camp counselor who guides them though our daily curriculum. Some of our camper’s favorite’s activities include weekly field trips and recreational swim time.
