When kids experience Y camp, they experience something new every day like the power of a positive mentor, the confidence that comes from trying (and succeeding) and the importance of healthy, long-lasting friendships. From water activities and sports to creative arts, each day is packed with age-appropriate activities, new friends and personal growth. In addition to traditional and specialty camp activities, we are uniquely devoted to physical activity, water safety and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education. Few environments will foster your child’s mind, body and spirit more than the YMCA. We have a 1-to-10 counselor to-camper ratio for camp, and a 1-to-8 ratio for Pre-K Camp.
