2017 YMCA Summer Day Camp

Don’t spend summer indoors… enjoy the great outdoors at The YMCA Day Camp!

Summer day camp is an unforgettable experience that will give each camper memories that last a lifetime. Our goal is to provide children with a safe and fun environment that will allow them to explore a variety of different activities. We also strive to instill the four character values of the YMCA (Caring/Honesty/Respect/Responsibility). Eligible participants are children going into kindergarten through 6th grade. 7th and 8th graders are also welcomed to being apart of our junior counselor program!
