Summer Day Camp Overview
- Every week of YMCA Summer Day Camp includes a field trip, inventions, hands-on play, arts and crafts, swimming, water games, and other sports and recreational activities.
- We aim to help prevent summer learning loss, so activities will incorporate STEM, literacy, and other academic components with a focus on learning through play.
- Y camps operate on a child choice system. Your child will be given options throughout the day to participate in the activities that interest her or him the most.
- Healthy snacks are provided each day.
- Our staff is fun, responsible, and caring, chosen for their experience with and love of children. Ratios are kept low to provide more individual attention. At least one staff member on site at all times is certified in CPR and First Aid, and all attend on-going training and professional development.
- The Y Child Care Services Programs are open to all children regardless of race, color, sex, handicap, religion or national origin. The Y never denies anyone participation in a program due to financial restrictions.
