Day Camp | Entering Grades 1–6

Day Camp is a great way for kids to make new friends, have fun and try new things in a natural environment under the guidance of positive adult role models. Whether you are looking for an introduction to summer camp, or a summer child care option with a twist, Day Camp is a great option for intentional programs in a gorgeous setting.

Day Camp runs Monday–Friday, and includes a value-based experience, swimming in the pool each day, arts & crafts, climbing tower, archery, and much more. YMCA Camp Collins will provide lunch and a snack each day. Parents are asked to transport their campers to YMCA Camp Collins; bus transportation is not provided.

Open Door Program (Camperships) 

We believe that every child deserves to come to camp. With that, we offer scholarship assistance to families who would otherwise not be able to afford to send their children to camp. Our scholarships come from funds raised through our annual campaign and unspent camp store deposits.
