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 YMCA Health Child Development, and the Y values: caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and inclusiveness. Our staff, many of whom have been campers in the past, have a criminal record check, standard first aid and CPR, and complete a week of safety oriented training to ensure your children receive the highest level of care you expect. YMCA Day Camp is the best way to play, build relationships and start to develop a healthy lifestyle like no other day camp.
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.
