WHY THE Y DAY CAMP?     

YMCA day camps create experiences that last a lifetime. Our intentional approach to day camp is based on the principles of YMCAHealthy Child Development. Our staff, many of whom have been campers in the past, have a criminal record check, standard first aid and CPR and go through a week of safety oriented training to ensure your children receive the highest level of care you expect.

AGE GROUPS
YMCA Day Camps are structured around the developmental age and stage of your child. Our unique age groupings allow our programs to be progressive, adding new and/or more challenging activities as your child grows.

ROVERS: Ages 4-5 yrs, staffing ratio 1:8
Promotes creativity and imagination and increases cooperation with peers and adults.

TRAILBLAZERS:
Ages 6-8 yrs, staffing ratio 1:10

Promotes learning through play and increases awareness of self and others.

EXPLORERS: Ages 9-10 yrs, staffing ratio 1:12
Promotes healthy lifestyle and active participation. Builds teamwork and fosters group learning.

MAVERICKS: Ages 11-12 yrs, staffing ratio 1:12
