2020 Summer Day Camps

Day Camp, River Camp, & Outdoor Camp

Information for ALL Camps

Enrollment is NOW OPEN for the 2020 summer camps! Although the YMCA is currently closed until further notice (due to COVID-19), we want parents to know when this all passes and we open back up, we will have our summer camps, as planned. We have the Enrollment Forms on the left side, for you to print. While we're closed, you can email your paperwork to Shayla at (Updated 4/1/20)

Submit enrollment paperwork for Day Camp by Sunday, May 17th, 2020 to guarentee your child's t-shirt size!! (Day Camp only)

Space is limited each week, so register early! Registration, with a scheduled payment or full payment, reserves your child's spot! Each week's deadline is the Wednesday prior to camp, or a $10 late fee will be charged (1 late fee per family). Each child receives one (1) T-shirt per camp.

Please read over the Parent Handbook because there is a lot of helpful information.

Day Camp

The YMCA Day Camp is for children entering K - 6th grades in Fall 2020. Day Camp provides an incredibly adventurous summer full of games, arts and crafts, swimming, weekly field trips, and fun! This program will include activities that will challenge your child to develop physically, mentally, and socially. Youth are placed into two age appropriate groups for daily activities (9 am - 3 pm) as follows: Entering Grades K-1st, & Grades 2nd-6th. Some field trips will be attended together. Most will be taken on Thursdays.

Dates: May 26th - August 7th, 2020 (11 individual weeks)

Times: 6:00 am - 3:30 pm (After Care 3:30-6:00 pm, see below for more details)

Main programming is between 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.  All children should plan to attend during these hours, Monday - Friday.

Fees: Member: $110/week (*Wk #1-$88)

Non-Member: $135/week (*Wk #1-$108)

The great thing about Day Camp is that you can register for the weeks that you need, so come one week or up to all 11 weeks!  We see new faces each week, so making new friendships lasts all summer long.

Adventure Camp (NEW for 2020!)

We've merged the favorites of our previous River Camp and Outdoor Camp, and created the best of the best - Adventure Camp! (Unfortunately, the Kiwanis Camp that we used for River Camp is still not accessible due to last year's flood.)

This camp is open to boys and girls, ages 7 to 13 only.  Each week will be different, so we hope you join us for both weeks!

Each day is a new adventure, as we'll visit a new park each day. In addition to our theme-based activities, each week we'll fish at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park, visit the Norfolk Archery Club, build bird feeders, play on Embrace Park's Splash Pad, daily games & activities at the Y's indoor field turf or gyms, and swim each afternoon. The fun continues on Friday with Laser Tag, a Hot Dog Roast, an Ice Cream Social for parents & family to attend, and on overnight stay at the YMCA!

See page 8 of the Enrollment Packet for camp locations & daily activities!
