YMCA Silver Spring 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.

ANIMAL ADVENTURES

Do you know what a group of elephants is called? Do you know the difference between a reptile and an amphibian? Do you know how a whale stays warm in freezing water? Find out this week through arts and crafts, science experiments, group games and more!

SHARK WEEK

How big are a Great White’s jaws? What is the smallest known shark species? Let’s find out when TVs must-watch event of the summer comes to Y camp! We will learn shark fun facts, how we can protect these ocean predators, create crafts and play shark games.

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!

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.

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.

TREASURE ISLAND

Pirates and princesses, oh my! Will you walk the plank, find your own hidden treasure or work together to get off the shipwrecked island? Come along for an adventure this week and you’re guaranteed to discover the best treasure of all, friendship.

DECADES OF FUN

Lava lamps, tie-dye, sock hops and cassettes! Get groovy with this camp that is all that and a bag of chips! Maybe you’ll learn to dance like Elvis, construct your own disco ball or even design a new video game like Pac-Man.

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.

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!
