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.

LUNAR MISSION

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND! Join us in a week of exploring outer space as we learn about our solar system and venture off on a mission to star systems unknown.

SHIPWRECKED

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!

RECYCLEMANIA

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.

Y-LYMPICS

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.

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!

SUMMER FIESTA

No better way to end camp then by celebrating all of our accomplishments and friendships we made this summer.  Time to let loose before school starts!
