Summer Day Camp

Get Ready for the BEST SUMMER EVER! The West Valley Family YMCA Summer Day Camps provide a safe and enriching environment for campers to participate in healthy, developmentally-appropriate activities and learning experiences. Our camps focus on having fun while learning, building self-esteem and social skills through new activities. Weekly themes keep campers engaged and provide a basis for kids to learn about themselves and the world around them. We have many options for your child to have the best summer ever!

Our Summer Day Camp programs are voluntarily accredited by the American Camp Association. That means we've met rigorous standards for organization, safety, health and program development.

ACA is the only independent accrediting organization reviewing camp operations in the country. ACA's nationally recognized standards program focuses primarily on program quality, health, and safety aspects of a camp's operation. ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.

Our day camps include STEM, Camp Readers, cooking projects, enrichment, special guest, arts & craft, sports & games, fitness, healthy living and so much more. In addition, some camps include excursions, visits to the pool and swim lessons.

For more information on all of our Summer Day Camp programs, give us a call at 818 774 2840 or send us an e-mail to Christopher Jefferson, Senior Director, Child Care & Community, at [email protected].
