YMCA Traditional Day Camp

Summer Day Camp


Register today!


The Y's Summer Day Camp is one of the oldest and most trusted camping programs in the country. Our day camps provide fun, child-centered activities and opportunities for learning through discovery, and challenge children to grow in imagination, creativity, self-directed initiative and leadership.

Summer Day Camps offer enriching activities based on the weekly theme where friends are made through group games, sports & fitness, hands-on science activities, arts & crafts, and music! (Activities and field trips are dependent on COVID restrictions.)

Here is what we are doing to protect your family during COVID-19:

  • Please note that children 10 and younger and staff who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks.
  • More frequent and thorough cleaning/disinfecting inside and outside of program hours.
  • Outdoor wellness checks for all children at sign-in that includes a parent to sign off on symptoms within the last 48 hours.
  • Sign-in and sign-out will be done outside the building, and by a staff member to reduce the amount of people in the building and touching the sign-in tablet.
  • Heightened alert for symptoms and a more stringent sick policy to avoid having sick children, or children with potential contagious symptoms in the program.
  • Smaller group sizes spread out in more program areas to reduce proximity with others.
  • Increased frequency of hand-washing for staff and children throughout the day
  • Water Bottle Fountains are the only ones available. Please send your child with a refillable water bottle.
