YMCA Day Camps foster children’s emotional, social, physical and creative growth through a range of interactive activities all while building relationships with counselors and staff who serve as role models every day. Camps provide a variety of activities from educational outdoor experiences to hands on academic projects. Each week includes activities like swimming, and field trips. YMCA Day Camp helps enrich lives by building assets. They are also committed to providing programs that focus on healthy living, physical activity, and educational enrichment within an atmosphere that fosters the growth of the 40 Developmental Assets in each camper. This is accomplished through national standards for out-of-school time and those set forth by the Search Institute.
