Summer Camps

A true summer experience when children need it most.

The YMCA is excited to offer a fantastic summer camp experience in 2022! Please select your camp location from the choices above to learn more about camp offerings at each location. If you are interested in learning more about camp, please fill out the form below and the YMCA will contact you with the requested information.

We are excited to have your family be a part of our camp family for this amazing summer ahead of us.  The Y has created a camp experience that allows children to be active and engaged in a safe environment.

To assist us in operating our camps in the continued COVID-19 pandemic, the Y asks that you provide a negative COVID-19 test to be administered within 24 hours of the start of camp every  Monday morning. A photo of the negative test result, along with a paper designating the date and time of the test, should be sent to the Camp Director prior to your child arriving at camp. If you are unable to send the test result, please bring a copy/photo with you and show at drop-off. The Y has implemented this measure to help create a safe environment for all of our campers.

Take advantage of a FREE Water Safety Course when you sign up for summer camp!

As “America’s swim instructor,” the YMCA teaches children of all ages and from all backgrounds that water should be fun, not feared, if you know how to stay safe in and around water.

By equipping kids with the tools they need to be confident in and around water, they’ll be able to reap the health benefits of exercise, bond with family and friends and take pride in their new skills — safely.

Class details:
Our Water Safety program is a 30-minute course that teaches basic water safety, pool rules, swim buddies, floating, what to do in an emergency and other water safety tips.
