YMCA Capital View Traditional Camps

UNDER THE SEA

Life is the bubbles, under the sea! Come play with us as we make ocean-themed crafts and figure out how long sea turtles live!

SUMMER FIESTA

It’s a party at the Y! Celebrate another awesome summer together in this week-long fiesta! Try you luck with the piñata, play fiesta inspired games and dance to the Macarena. NO SIESTA for this week!

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 Junior and Senior campers will be invited to attend the 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.

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.

AT THE MOVIES

Experience the movies LIVE with us at the Y! Each day we’ll dive into one of our favorite movies for a day of crafts, experiments, games and FUN! In this camp we might plot like Minions, sing like Elsa, learn how the Avengers save the day, or visit Zootopia with our friends.
