Our Adventure Camp has openings in Week #1, June 6-10, but very limited spots remain.

Once registered for any camp, we do require Enrollment forms to be submitted. New this year, a $10 deposit is required per week, per child, at registration. The enrollment form is available on the right side of this page. If you register online, the full payment is required, and please submit your enrollment forms to the YMCA within 3 days.

Space is limited each week (Day Camp 78 max; Adventure Camp 40 max), so register early to guarantee your child's spot! All fees must be paid for by the Monday prior to the week of camp. Each child receives one (1) T-Shirt for Day Camp and one (1) T-shirt for Adventure Camp.

Day Camp 2022

The YMCA Day Camp is for children entering K - 6th grades in Fall 2022. Day Camp provides an incredibly adventurous summer full of games, arts and crafts, swimming, weekly field trips, and lots of fun! This program will include activities that will challenge your child to develop physically, mentally, and socially. Youth are placed into age-appropriate groups for daily activities (9 am - 3 pm) as follows: Rockin’ Rockets (Entering Gr. K-1st); Shooting Stars (Gr. 2nd-3rd); & Supernovas (Gr. 4th-6th). Some field trips will be attended together. Most field trips will be taken on Thursdays.

Dates: May 23rd - August 5th, 2022 (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: $120/week (*Week #2 & #7 - $96/week)

Non-Member: $135/week (*Week #2 & #7 - $116/week)

The great thing about Day Camp is that you can register for the weeks that you need/want, 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 2022

(Registration is open, but very limited spots remain ONLY in Week #1, June 6-10.)

Break up your summer with our exciting Adventure Camp! This camp is for kids entering grades 2nd – 7th, only. 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 do archery, build bird feeders, explore nature & hike, 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 Friday with Laser Tag, a Hot Dog Roast, an Ice Cream Social for parents & family to attend, and on overnight stay at the YMCA!

This camp is only offered 2 weeks, and each week is different, so we hope you can join us for both!
