Y Summer Day Camp provides a variety of opportunities each week through August 29 for your child to experience a fun-filled summer!  Kids make new friends and learn from qualified and high-energy counselors! Kids take weekly fieldtrips to out-of-town water parks, participate in a summer reading program, enjoy water play days during camp, exercise, play games and do activities with the new friends they make at camp.  Kids work as a team while learning and playing, and make fun memories during camp. Each day brings something fun and new! Camp is for kids entering K-6th grade. Camp is sponsored by CEFCU and Lincoln Rotary Club.
