Programs

Summer Camps

We are in full camp planning mode. We are currently adapting our summer camp program to align with the latest health and safety directives and recommendations provided by the CDC, health department and local government. 

We believe in each child’s individuality and focus on three areas of development: friendship, accomplishment and belonging. All campers have the chance to experience our core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

One of the most fun parts of growing up is trying something new and loving the experience. Every single week at summer camp offers so many unique themes and opportunities for preschoolers, school-age children and teens.

Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. From athletics to arts, there’s something for every child at the Y. Our priority is to give every child the chance to unplug and grow during summer camp in a safe and fun environment.
