Summer camp

Y Summer Day Camp provides an opportunity for children to experience a fun-filled summer making new friends and learning with qualified, nurturing, high-energy Y counselors. What determines the success of Y camp? Y kids are guaranteed to come home each night tired, dirty and hungry. Kids learn to lead, to share and to work as a team. Children make great memories, laugh and smile a lot, as camp puts play in their day. The day camp activities include daily exercise, character-building lessons, weekly water park field trips, water play days, outdoor recreation, Bible stories, art, reading, music and more. Day camp is for kids from kindergarten to sixth grade. June 4-Aug. 29.
