YMCA Traditional Day Camp

Summer Day Camp

Summer Day Camps offer enriching activities where friends are made through group games, sports & fitness, hands-on science activities, arts & crafts, music and swimming. All activities are based on a weekly camp theme.

The Y's Summer Day Camp is one of the oldest and most trusted camping programs in the country. Our day camps provide fun, child-centered activities and opportunities for learning through discovery, and challenge children to grow in imagination, creativity, self-directed initiative and leadership.
