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.

Y-LIMPICS

Campers will spend the week learning the customs and rich cultural history of different countries and run, skip, and laugh their way through various challenges all week long.
