SAFETY is paramount in everything we do - the safety of our children continues to be our foremost goal.

WE KNOW KIDS! After years of operating camp we’ve learned a thing or two about providing the best possible camp experience for your child and you.

FAMILIES SEND THEIR KIDS YEAR AFTER YEAR Why? Because while camp is so much fun, what kids are really experiencing are positive life lessons.

OUR TEAM Without a doubt, our extensive training creates the best possible group of counselors for your child.

YMCA Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility are emphasized in each of our weekly sessions.

Plan Ahead for Summer Fun!.

Our summer camps are packed with fun, crafts, swimming, climbing walls, refreshments, a T-shirt, pinata, and of course, kinetics activities! The purpose of our camps is to develop hand-eye coordination, agility, balance, and self-confidence. We accomplish this by utilizing various apparatus such as the trampoline, balance beam, bars, spring floor, rope, belts, and vaulting pit.  Full Day Camp participants should plan to bring a sack lunch as well as a swimsuit and a towel.

*Please note that preschool participants MUST be potty trained.
