Summer Day Camp

The Best. Summer. Ever! is happening at YMCA Super Summer Adventure Day Camp. Join us!

Our Super Summer Adventure Day Camp team is embarking on a fantastical Journey through Time!

Each week, campers embrace the power of pretend play to discover new skills, build self-confidence, make new friends and feel a sense of achievement.

Camp activities include arts and humanities, field trips, swimming featuring our Safety Around Water curriculum and plenty of outdoor play!

Because the Y is focused on stopping summer learning loss, our camp curriculum includes reading time as well as math and science activities.

Our Impact in Summer 2017

A Typical Week of Camp Includes:

  • Camper’s Choice & Play during early morning and late afternoon hours
  • Skills building related to STEM, Art and Humanities, Sports and outdoor recreation play
  • Participates in Camp Readers Program
  • Start and end a camp day with a group assembly filled with song, dance and recognition to celebrate the spirit of camp
  • At least twice a week, campers participate in our Safety Around Water program which is designed to gain the basics skills of water safety in a group setting
  • Character development with a focus on our core values: Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility
  • A variety of either onsite special activities & guest speakers or off site field trips. *Vary per week, per camp site.
