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.

Where fun and friends meet.

Your kids will discover the friendships, character values, and fun of day camp that builds self-esteem and healthy habits. Summer day camp is a great place for young people to enjoy a traditional summer playing outdoors. Your camper will have the chance to try to activities and play a new sport. The summer day camp staff is energetic and well trained. All staff is CPR, First Aid and Water Safety certified to help ensure you have peace of mind while your camper has fun. Your camper will also learn about the six pillars of character; Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. Summer Day Camps are based out of Lacy Park in beautiful San Marino.

Day Camps are open Monday through Friday, 7am-6pm. All field trips and organized programming occur between 9am and 4pm. Extended care free play, during the hours of 7-9am and 4-6pm, is included in weekly camp at no additional cost! In observance of Independence Day, camp will be closed on July 4.
