YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends. Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations because they help foster leadership, self-confidence and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. We offer a huge variety of camp locations, options and formats, so no matter what your background or summer schedule, there’s a place for your kids at a Y camp.
Summer Day Camps
Summer Day Camps are full-day experiences that provide students in kindergarten through eighth grade with fun and enriching learning environments, filled with healthy activities and positive role models. Our camps also include a wide variety of activities such as swimming, games, arts and crafts, and sports in a safe, supportive environment.
Each week of summer camp features a different theme and related activities. From Community Hero Week to Mad Scientist Week to Party in the USA Week, kids will have a different experience every time with fun and educational activities that are centered around the theme to give them a summer to remember!
Campers are grouped in age-appropriate huddles, and breakfast and lunch are included with the weekly price. To accommodate your family’s schedule, we offer Summer Day Camps in 2-, 3- and 5-day options! Camp starts on June 12th and runs throughout the summer.
Whether it is a Lego or art camp at our Jerry Long Family YMCA or one of the many sports camps at our various Y locations, we offer many half-day options that fit your schedule and feed their passions. Our sports camps are split into two categories: Camp Play Ball Elite and Camp Play Ball. Camp Play Ball Elite is taught by experts experienced in their sport who not only coach the fundamentals, but share their vast knowledge to elevate your child’s game in volleyball and basketball, as well. Sports camps at Camp Play Ball reach far beyond developing youth skills in sports they love (including flag football, lacrosse, pickleball, baseball, soccer, all-sport and more) with drills, competition games, scrimmages and character development. We also offer an extended care opportunity for pick up.
