At Y Specialty Camps, kids make new friends, accomplish goals, learn new skills, and experience belonging in a way that only the Y can provide. Every new camp experience comes with a chance to learn and grow. At the Y, we strive to give every child and teen the opportunity to test their own limits and explore their potential. The YMCA is offering camps for Jr. Campers and Day Campers. These camps are designed to inspire minds, spark creativity and build connections.
