Summer Day Camp


In a YMCA of Metro Chicago day camp, children experience new things, develop new skills, and have fun along the way. At Y summer day camp, we create an exciting, safe environment for kids to have an unforgettable summer of fun. And while they’re taking part in unique experiences and adventures, they’re also building self-esteem, developing interpersonal skills and making lasting friendships and memories.

Summer is just around the corner, so sign up at the membership desk today!
