Start your training early for this one! This week we’ll tackle challenging obstacle courses and compete for the title of Ayrlawn Ninja, a title NONE have been able to claim yet…
EVERY DAY IS A HOLIDAY
Join us for a camp full of festivities! Maybe it will be Halloween, your birthday, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, or St. Patrick’s Day! It will be week filled with celebrations!
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.
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.
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—in 2018 we discovered the planet Macachicozza, land of the Macachican people, found in the Whirlpool Galaxy!
Become an elite agent and solve this week’s TOP SECRET CASE! You’ll have to have a keen eye, smooth moves, and a quick mind to decipher clues and discover the truth. Lucky for you, you’ll have a whole group of friends at camp to help solve this mystery!
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 Junior and Senior campers will be invited to attend the 25th 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.
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.
UNDER THE BIG TOP
Come one, come all… to the YMCA Ayrlawn Circus! Learn the ways of the clowns and tightrope walker, create your own carnival games, practice face-painting and much more this week.
