Its a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Captain Y and the Super Heroes! Grab your capes, shields, and masks and get ready to show your true strength this week. Buckle up because you are traveling to another dimension!

WEEK 5: IT’S A THINGAMAJIG

STEM shapes our everyday experiences and is designing our future—our Thingamajig camp opens doors to strategic thinking and creative expression by challenging children to invent solutions to everyday problems using only what can be re-purposed around them. This is a very special week as our campers will be invited to attend the 26th Annual YMCA Thingamajig Invention Convention—a one of a kind STEM-based gathering where youth and community partners come together to learn, explore, experiment, and discover.

WEEK 6: ANIMAL ADVENTURES

Do you know what a group of elephants is called? Do you know the difference between a reptile and an amphibian? Do you know how a whale stays warm in freezing water? Find out this week through arts and crafts, science experiments, group games and more!

WEEK 7: SPACE INVADERS

Attention space cadets! You won’t want to miss out on this camp from another world! This week we will explore our galaxy, create a space craft, and practice some space cadet training.

WEEK 8: EXPLORING THE WORLD

Around the world in 5 days! We’ll be learning all about different regions, people and their customs from all over the world through arts/crafts, group games and science activities. We may even ask families to bring in items that represent their own cultures.
