Friendship, Accomplishment, Belonging

You know there's nothing like the Y. There's also nothing like the Kroehler Family YMCA Day Camps. As a Y member, you count on us for what you need to live healthy and feel great. You can also count on us to give your kids a great summer.

We're here to inspire kids to work together and play together, creating friendships that can last a lifetime.

We are here to suuround your kids with fantastic chances to try new experiences and show them all they can do when they believe in themselves.

We're here to make your kids feel welcome. To help them quickly realize they belong and can be themselves. To try new things. To make new friends. And be a part of something great. 

One week or the whole summer. Indoors and out. On their own or in a group. Archery to arts, character development to cannonballs, they'll have an amazing summer, all in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment.

Fee Assistance

The YMCA is proud of its heritage and commitment to make its character-building, family-enriching programs available to everyone in our community. Annually, we receive support from hundreds of members, community leaders and businesses who believe in our purpose.

They contribute generously to our Annual Campaign (Stronger Together Campaign), investing in youth and families. These funds are distributed on a sliding scale to families with a documented financial need in our communities. Subject to available YMCA resources and program space, no person will be denied participation because of an inability to pay. Download an application or pick one up at the YMCA.
