Dream. Discover. Create.
Our Full Day Camps are available at locations across Portland and Vancouver. Each week has an engaging theme that allows youth to explore, create and play. These camps allow parents the flexibility of full day care for their children in a safe, supportive, and fun environment.
Curriculum activities will focus on STEM, physical activity, arts and crafts, group games and other enriching social development activities.
Summer Camp is now open for YMCA Members. Registration will open for Non-Members on February 12.

Employment Related Day Care (OR) and Working Connections Child Care (WA) are subsidy programs that help low-income, working families access affordable child care by funding all or a portion of tuition costs. All of the YMCA's Full Day Camps (excluding Camp Collins) are approved providers who can accept these funding sources. These programs are operated through the Department of Human Services (OR) and the Department of Social and Health Services (WA). If approved, individuals will need to connect their accounts through the state with the location they are registered for using that programs provider number.

Last year was our first time taking part in YMCA summer programs and it has had such a positive impact on our family. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to have a place for my son to socialize, make new friends, and take part in thoughtful, enriching activities each day.
