Day Camp at the Y
Kinder Camp is for young campers who are ready for an all-day program. Campers will explore nature, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting memories. Activities may include themed-based weeks, music & dance, arts & crafts, sports, outdoor play, recreational swimming, and more.
Capture the essence of traditional camp in our Activity Central Camps! Campers ages 5 to 9 will enjoy active play, creative arts, swimming, and more, all set around weekly themes.
Tween campers have a style and pace all their own, so we’ve designed activities to meet their needs and interests. Separate from Activity Central, tweens ages 10 to 12 will enjoy core camp activities, ensuring your tween will make lifelong memories this summer.
Outdoor Adventure Camp
Adaptive Camp is designed for campers ages 5 to 12 whose physical, social and emotional abilities require additional assistance when participating in camp activities.
First Camp provides an introductory experience for new-to-camp kiddos. First campers learn about friendship, responsibility, and caring and follow a structured schedule filled with age-appropriate activities and travel as a family group with their counselors to and from all activities.
In Discovery Camp, campers grow in responsibility, independence, and healthy relationships and discover the natural world through traditional camp activities. As camp begins, campers join family groups with other kids of the same age and have a dedicated counselor who guides them through the day and facilitates camp activities.
Explorers join family groups with campers of the same age, with a dedicated counselor who guides them through the day, facilitating fun activities. Campers participate in activities as a group and will also have the freedom to choose their own activity during favorite activity time.
