Summer Camps

 

 

Overview

Y Summer Camp help kids grow and have fun through exploring the outdoors, building self-confidence and independence, learning core values, developing life skills and –most importantly-being active.  While our campers are taking part in unique experiences and adventures, they’re also self-esteem, developing interpersonal skills and making lasting friendships and memories.  Each week imaginative themes and activities provide an engaging atmosphere for hands-on learning and exploration.  Y Camp provides a safe environment for kids to have an unforgettable summer of fun.

Our camps are accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA). The ACA enforces rigorous national standards which ensure the safety and quality of the programming offered throughout the summer. Our youth centered core programming has been designed to support the experiential learning of each child engaged and support the peace of mind of parents knowing their child is safe and having a fun summer.
