The Y – Discover new ways to play at summer day camp


Leave ordinary at the door. Extraordinary is in store!

Fry Family YMCA Day Camp is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited! At the Y, we know that there’s nothing like a joyful summer and the warm sunshine, delicious frozen treats, pool days, and all of the endless fun that it brings. And at the root of it all is the power of play!

That’s why, at YMCA Day Camp, we put play at the center of everything we do. We play for fun and for progress — and this summer, our Day Camps are here to help youth discover new ways to play, explore, and grow.

In addition to the array of educational and recreational activities that are a part of Traditional Camp, the Fry Family Y offers a wide range of sports, aquatics, and specialty camps to fit your camper’s specific interests. Whether your camper wants to become the next great chef at Culinary Camp, uncover the mysteries of forensic science at STEM Detectives Camp, or shine in the spotlight at Stage & Screen Camp, we’re sure to have a camp that empowers them to grow into the best, most confident versions of themselves.

For aspiring athletes, we offer a variety of sports and aquatics camps that will help them take their skills to the next level, including Basketball Camp, Badminton Camp, Sports of All Sorts Camp, and more. Campers will learn sports techniques, teamwork skills, and gameplay while making friends and shaping unforgettable memories.

Plus, this year we’re offering a special camp for our swimming enthusiasts who are ready to dive into some extra responsibility! Our Junior Lifeguards Camp for youth ages 11 to 14 teaches the basics of enforcing pool safety to build the foundation of knowledge, attitudes, and skills for future lifeguards.

There’s so much to discover at YMCA Day Camp! Interested in seeing all of our camp offerings? Visit us at ymcachicago.org/camp to find a very extensive and very helpful e-brochure to help you find the right camp for your youth.

Our camps are filling up quickly, so don’t wait too long! Register online at fryfamilyymca.org or in person at the Fry Family Y, and give your youth up for a summer they’ll never forget!
