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.

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!

FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA

Hooray for the red, white & blue! Explore the US and celebrate our beautiful nation at camp this week! This week will be filled with stars and stripes galore with a little bit of geography and patriotic activities thrown in.

DR. SEUSS

Come along with the Cat in the Hat to figure out what the Lorax is, what kind of mischief Thing 1 & Thing 2 get into and why Sam I am loved green eggs and ham!

JUNGLE SAFARI

Explore the jungle and come face to face with leopards, tucans, and spider monkeys… Okay, not really face-to-face, but come learn about all the cool animals hidden in the jungle while doing lots of animal crafts, playing jungle games, and most importantly making tons of friends at camp!

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.

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.

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.

ESCAPE TO DINO LAND

Long necks, big teeth, sharp claws, OH MY! Come explore all there is to know about the prehistoric creatures of our past! You will learn many fun facts about the extinct species, you may even create your own fossil, or dig for dinosaurs in this week full of everything dinosaur.

SUMMER FIESTA

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