Specialty Camp Descriptions
Fitness & Fun
Come and see just how FUN it is to be healthy and active! Fit & Fun isn’t about lifting weights or developing a workout regimen. It’s about showing kids that you can have just as much fun by moving around and getting exercise as you can by binging Netflix and watching Tik Tok! On Friday please join us to learn about the games your child fell in love with at camp this week!
Yoga & Art
Yoga & Art is a great class to bring some calm and relaxation into life while also learning new and useful lifelong skills! Our certified yoga instructor will teach your child the very basics of yoga and we’ll base our art projects around the skills and values learned from them each day. On Friday you can enjoy a yoga class taught by your now seasoned Yogi who will walk you through the steps they’ve learned throughout the week!
Archery specialty camp is designed to teach the basics of archery as well as hone your skills. All campers will learn and improve as the week progresses. Campers will be able to show off their new skill on Friday with a fun competition which parents will be invited to.
Let’s get outside this summer and enjoy the beautiful nature here in Albuquerque! In Outdoor Adventure your child will be led by a trained staff member on hikes and trails to learn how to safely enjoy the outdoors. Along the way they will learn how to identify various plants and animals in nature and tell you all about them. On Friday join us for a hike with your child so they can tell you everything they’ve learned!
Bring your soon-to-be chef to the YMCA’s Top Chef Camp to learn their way around the kitchen! We’ll teach them the basics about safety in the kitchen, the tools we have at our disposal, and how to prepare some basic dishes. Join us on Friday for a meal prepared for you by your child. Bon Appétite!
Do you see your child as a performer? Or maybe you know about the academic and social benefits of performance. If so then come on by our Performing Arts Camp this summer! This camp will teach your child the fundamentals of performance through dance, drama, and song in a fun and safe environment to help build their confidence. Come by on Friday for a performance put on just for you!
With technology growing all around us, it’s not a bad idea to get an early start on how it all works! Our Coding Camp will teach your child the basics of computer code, and the role it plays in society. Join us on Friday for a presentation of what your child learned during the week!
Kids Gone Crafty
Come join us for a week of awesome art projects! From friendship bracelets to shoebox robots, your child will get to explore their creative side and learn some neat tricks along the way! Our experienced staff will lead your child through guided projects, and help them with their own ideas during free time, which will lead to an awesome art show for you to walk through on Friday!
