About Winter Day Camps

YMCA of Columbia-Willamette day camps provide children with new experiences, skill building, a sense of community and lasting friendships. Our Winter Day Camps are open to children from kindergarten through fifth grade, ages five to twelve.

Day Camps During Winter Break

YMCA Winter Day Camps begin each year around mid December and generally run through the end of the month. Our Winter Day Camps are available at 19 locations throughout the Portland and Vancouver area. This day camp is for students currently enrolled in kindergarten to grade 5, ages 5–12. 

Our Winter Day Camps are uniquely designed around specific themed activities such as art, sports and science. YMCA day camps help build campers’ achievements, sense of belonging and relationships through a mix of fun and educational activities.



Our goal is to make our programs and membership affordable for all. Based on available resources and sliding scale eligibility, the Y will not turn anyone away due to an inability to pay full fees. Assistance is made possible by generous donations to the Y's Annual Campaign, which funds our Scholarships.
