Adaptive Camps Bring Connection & Fun

Camp In Motion is an adaptive sports camp held at the Southwest Family YMCA each summer. In collaboration with Dell Children’s Medical Center Foundation, Camp In Motion is designed for children with cerebral palsy and other neurological diagnoses.

 

The YMCA takes pride in being for all, and we strive to serve everyone in our community. Learn more about our adaptive programming and enroll or volunteer!

WAVE Drowning Technology Prevention

 

When WAVE Drowning Detection Systems offered the YMCA an opportunity to pilot their system with campers at YMCA Camp Moody, we said yes! Drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death for children under age 5 and the second cause through ages 14, and keeping children safe in the water is our top priority.

KVUE stopped by camp last week to learn more about this enhanced safety system. See how this innovative technology is helping keep kids safe this summer!
