Overview

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. 

All of the following camps are being offered by the Kroehler Family YMCA, 34 S. Washington, Naperville, IL 60540. If you have any questions, please contact us at 630.420.6270. We look forward to serving your family this summer at Y Summer Camp.

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

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

Belonging
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.

Please submit your scholarship information a minimum of 4 weeks before camp begins to ensure timely processing. Applications received after May 3rd are not guaranteed to be processed and applied before camp begins. Scholarship is NOT retroactive and cannot be applied to completed weeks of camp.
