Summer is a time for kids to stretch their imaginations, truly play, and learn through experiential experiences.

For roughly a century, the YMCA has been be providing Summer Camps for youth of all ages, empowering them to do mighty things. No matter what the world looks like the Y Camps are here to provide opportunities for youth to grow and thrive. Summer is an ideal time for youth to get up, get out and explore.

The American Camping Association shares that 96% of children who attend Day Camp say that “camp helped me make new friends” In addition, 92% say “Camp helped me feel good about myself.”

There are many unique benefits to attending Summer Camp at the Y. At Y Camp children have the opportunity to build unique interests, engage in a new type of friendship building, and help with mental stimulation and physical activity. Camp also reinforces independence and empowerment, leads to creativity, and promotes appreciation and gratitude.

Youth who attend YMCA Safe ‘n Sound Summer Camps share that “I loved the YMCA Camp because there were awesome counselors, fun games, I met new friends, and there were amazing field trips.”

Y Camp creates adventures for today, and tomorrow’s memories.

Whatever the summer brings, we are ready for the adventure. Join us for a summer of fun and friends. Registration is happening now and we would love for your family to be part of the YMCA Camp Family. Summer Camp can be life changing, join the adventure.
