Summer Day Camps

Why Camp?

This has been another stressful year. Let kids be kids again this summer, and give them a chance to recoup, relax, and reconnect. Summer Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends.  But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camp teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst a world of fun and meaningful relationships.

Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
