Summer Fun Starts Here!

Theme Camp offers new experiences mixed with old camp favorites! Campers will experience fun, hands-on themed activities each week, along with a field trip, a special onsite guest experience, free swim at the Y, and plenty of opportunities to be creative and make new friends.

Leadership opportunities through clubs, project-based learning, LEGO challenges, participating in STEM challenges, and creative art stations will engage young minds. Many activities will focus on the YMCA character values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring.
