YMCA Fairfax County Reston Traditional Camps
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.
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, talk like pirates and more.
EVERYDAY IS A HOLIDAY
Celebrate all your favorite holidays at camp with us—from Halloween to Valentine’s Day, St Patricks Day to Christmas, New Year’s Eve and many more! As if that isn’t enough excitement, we’ll be ending the week with a giant Birthday Party for everybody. You won’t want to miss this week at camp!
We’re going recycling-crazy! This week we will be reducing and reusing—let your imagination take the reins and create a robot from a shoebox or a volcano from a water bottle and just imagine what you could create from some buttons and a soda can… Many of our creations this week will be submitted to the YMCA’s Annual Thingamajig Invention Convention occurring the following week to be eligible to win some exciting prizes! Campers do not need to be enrolled in camp the week of the Invention Convention to claim their prizes.
CAMP BEFORE TIME
ROAR!! Make some noise and lets travel back to a time when dinosaurs were alive! We will begin working as archaeologists digging for fossils and playing various games and crafts related to Dinosaurs.
AT THE MOVIES
Calling all actors, this camp will allow you to truly express yourself as well as take on roles you’ve dreamt of while enjoying the glamor of the movies.
CAPTAIN Y & THE SUPER HEROES
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!
