Summer Day Camp

Summer is a time of freedom, friends and fun! Our Summer Day Camp programs are designed to provide children with great experiences, led by trained, nurturing members of our team. It’s all about discovery, as kids will explore nature, discover new talents, try new activities, gain independence and make lasting friendships and memories.

“The fact that my daughter can’t wait to go to camp each day because she’s so excited to see what’s going to happen is wonderful for me! As a parent you sometimes worry whether your child is enjoying camp, but no worries on this end – it’s the perfect solution for both of us.”

Here’s what we integrate into every Y Summer Camp experience:

  • A caring environment for all children
  • Adult role models. Our camp directors and staff model positive, responsible behavior
  • Positive peer interaction. Campers interact responsibly in safe, well-supervised settings
  • Creative activities, such as music, art and nature
  • Self-esteem. Our staff and activities make campers feel successful and good about themselves

Check out all the Summer Camps and activities we offer, and if you have any questions, just give us a call.
