YMCA Silver Spring Sports & Dance Camps


YMCA Archery Camp is led by USA Archery certified instructors. This target archery program is for the beginner to intermediate archer primarily focusing on safety, stance and grip, aim. Throughout the week we will work on our form and accuracy following a progression of games-based practice sessions.  


Campers will spend part of the day learning and practicing basketball fundamentals: dribbling, shooting, passing, fast breaks, ball handling, and the importance of teamwork.  


Activities include individual foot skills, technical drills, tactical practices, small-sided games, coached scrimmages, and World Cup tournaments.   


Lace up those sneakers, put on your shorts; it’s time to have a ball with an assortment of sports. Campers will experience a wide range of different sports in this safe, pressure free arena, so come on in and try them out!   


Campers learn and improve basic gymnastics skills like tumbling, beam, and floor while gaining strength, flexibility and balance. Crafts, games and other camp activities make sure this is a fun introduction to gymnastics. At the end of the week, parents are invited to a Friday Showcase to watch their tiny tumblers.


At YMCA Tennis Camp, our certified tennis coaches help campers learn and improve their skills on-court, while creating lasting friendships and memories. Your child will learn the fundamentals of the game through drills, games, and friendly competition adapted to age and skill level while practicing sportsmanship in a safe and fun environment.


Campers will journey across the world in only 5 days through lessons in different international dances. Popular dance styles and genres from around the world will be introduced through games, crafts and choreographed pieces ending with a Friday Showcase!  


Join in a week full of choreography and SPIRIT! Campers get approximately 2 hours of instruction daily mixed in with group games, arts & crafts and everything else children love about camp! Parents are invited to a Friday Showcase each session to see what our performers learned throughout the week.
