Weekly Themes | YMCA Summer Day Camp

Summer Camp at the Y

Are you ready for an amazing summer of camp? In Activity Central for children ages 5–9 and Tween Camp for children ages 10–12, weekly themes help set the tone for all sorts of fun activities where kids explore, discover and grow. Here's what we've got planned for this year.

Imagination Destination


Magical Campers are immersed in the wonderful world of fairy tales as they enjoy stories and discover illumination, castle designing, wizard code cracking, elf tag and more.

Mission Possible


There is a secret double agent amongst us! Come join us at camp and we’ll combine our best STEM skills to capture the double agent before it’s too late!

Animal Kingdom


Put on your safari hat and grab your binoculars because it’s about to get wild in here! Campers will spend the week exploring and learning about our favorite safari animals—lions, tigers, zebras, and more!



Oh no! We’ve been shipwrecked! What will it take to survive a week of being shipwrecked at the Y? Find out as we build our own boats, play water games, search for buried treasure, and more!

U.S.A. - Unbelievable Summer Activities


Bring your red, white and blue attire this week and join together to celebrate our nation's birthday and partake in classic summertime games like tug-o-war, four square, hopscotch and arts and crafts.

To Infinity and Beyond


Blast off with us this week as we travel out of this world to explore the stars, planets, launch a rocket, design a Martian colony and make it back to Earth in time for dinner.

Game On!


Come live out all your favorite board games, video games, and more in life size fun. This fantastic week will teach you new and classic games alike.

Under the Spotlight


With a focus on the basics of singing and acting, campers will learn about a variety of music genres, perform skits, and express their creativity through music and drama.



Campers will spend the week learning the customs and rich cultural history of their camp’s chosen country and run, skip, and laugh their way through various challenges all week long.

Carnival Crazed


Ringmasters, feats of strength, performances and excitements will flavor their week of camp.

Summer Rewind


For our grand finale week, campers decide the activities! We'll take the most popular themed days, games and activities and relive them one last time this summer.
