Outer Banks Family YMCA
Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of campfires, bugle calls, canoeing, archery, talent shows and meaningful relationships.
Day camp is all about discovery. Kids are given the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence and make lasting memories—all through a variety of activities! And, of course, it’s fun too! Activities may include theme-based weeks, arts & crafts, sports, outdoor play, music and dance, recreational swimming, special family events and more.
