YMCA Youth Day Camp offers new experiences and activities for hundreds of young people every summer. The Y’s Youth Day Camp offers a classic summer camp experience filled with a wide array of activities that your child can excel in. Each week is based on a theme, but regardless of the week, children will learn new sports and games, create arts and crafts, develop good sportsmanship, be a part of a team, build new friendships, participate in STEM educational activities, swim, learn to be healthy and much more! Each week, campers will take offsite field trips including the opportunity to relax in the movie theater watching a children’s film, swimming at our local city pools and splash pads, visiting our local parks, and engaging in a fun, local field trip such as bowling, water parks, the aquarium, and much more! All field trips and important information and updates will be communicated through weekly emails. Parents can enjoy peace of mind knowing their children will be active, have fun and want to keep coming back day after day, all summer long! Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided.
