YMCA Day Camp


We're here to inspire kids to work together and play together, creating friendships that can last a lifetime. Staff are carefully chosen and trained to help children flourish socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically, role modeling our Christian principles of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service.


We are here to surround your kids with fantastic challenges to try new experiences, a chance to try until they succeed, and show them all they can do when they believe in themselves.

We're here to surround every child with support, guidance and opportunities to discover and learn. A chance to explore new talents and interests and discover what they are passionate about.


We're here to make kids feel welcome, and help them quickly realize YMCA Day Camp is a place where they belong and can be themselves so they can thrive knowing they can relax in a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment.


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.
