Unlock a World of Adventure for Your Kids at YMCA Summer Camps!

YMCA camps open the door to a world of exploration for kids, offering them the chance to delve into new places, activities and ideas beyond their everyday lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests, and new friends. With a rich legacy of fostering leadership, self-confidence, and a deep respect for community, YMCA camps have been a trusted choice for parents for generations. We offer a large variety of camp locations, options and formats, so no matter what your background or summer schedule, there is a place for your kids at a Y camp.

From Day Camps to specialty camps, the Y provides a variety of engaging programs designed to nurture personal growth and create lasting memories.

Summer Day Camps

Summer Day Camps are full-day experiences tailored for students in first through eighth grade. These camps offer a blend of enriching learning environments, healthy activities and positive role models. Activities include swimming, games, arts and crafts, and sports in a safe and supportive setting.

Each week, campers embark on a new adventure featuring different themes, from Disney Week to Mad Scientist Week and Party in the USA Week. During the week, they participate in educational activities matching the theme, may dress up as their favorite character, and sing songs from their favorite movies.

Campers are grouped in age-appropriate huddles and breakfast and lunch are included in the weekly price. To accommodate your family’s schedule, we offer camps in 2, 3 and 5-day options! Camp starts on June 10 and runs right up until school starts.

Registration is open, so visit ykidscamp.org today!

Specialty Camps

Whether your child is into LEGOs, art or sports, YMCA Specialty Camps cater to various interests and passions. Options like LEGO and Art Camps at the Jerry Long Family YMCA, or sports camps such as Camp Play Ball and Camp Play Ball Elite, offer half-day program options.

At Art Camp, kids get to express themselves by painting, exploring various art mediums, and learning about different artists and artistic styles. At the end of the week, they get to show off their projects in an art show!

While at LEGO camp, kids work in teams to build a project, vote on their favorites and take home their LEGO kit at the end of the week.

Sports camps at Camp Play Ball reach far beyond developing youth’s skills in sports they love (including flag football, lacrosse, pickleball, baseball, soccer, all-sports, and more) with drills, competition games, scrimmages, and character development. Camp Play Ball Elite is taught by experts experienced in their sport who not only coach the fundamentals, but also share their vast knowledge to elevate your child’s game in volleyball and basketball.

Spots are limited! Go to ykidscamp.org for more information and to register today!

YMCA Camp Hanes

YMCA Camp Hanes is the perfect place to disconnect from devices and connect to the great outdoors with peers. Offering both day and overnight camp options, Camp Hanes promises summer days filled with fun activities and lifelong memories.

Day campers experience the excitement of residential camp without spending the night. Transported from the Robinhood Road and William G. White, Jr. Family YMCAs, they enjoy activities like canoeing, swimming, a lake slide, water zip line, archery, riflery, arts and crafts, nature walks, and field games.

Overnight campers get the best of both worlds—participating in day camp activities and exclusive experiences like horseback riding, paintball, weekly dance parties, campfires, and more. While the overnight camp lasts a week, the memories and friendships made last a lifetime!
