Kinder Camp -- Kinder Camp is perfect for children who have not yet attended Kindergarten. Kinder Camp offers age-appropriate field trips, games, crafts, and books which emphasize changing weekly themes. This camp has a little more quiet time with all the fun and activities of Theme Camp. 

Theme Camp -- Children will enjoy a different theme each week. Theme Camp offers kids new experiences mixed with old camp favorites. Campers thrive during various daily activities including organized games, arts and craft projects, exciting field trips, and swimming. Many activities will focus on the YMCA character values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Caring, and Faith. 

Sports Camp -- YMCA Sports Camp is a perfect destination for every child who enjoys playing sports and being active. YMCA Sports Camp introduces and emphasizes the fundamentals of sports to each child. From skills to drills to the importance of teamwork, Sports Camp provides a fun and supportive environment for athletes of all skill levels. Along with approximately four hours of sports drills, scrimmages, and sports activities each day, campers will also go swimming twice each week, take one field trip each week, and participate in sports-related crafts and character development activities.

Trailblazer Camp -- Designed for the mature and older school-aged kids, Trailblazer Camp offers greater opportunity for specific skill development. Most of the day will focus on the weekly topic while also offering a healthy dose of swimming, sports, arts and crafts, and field trips. An extra emphasis will be placed on team building and leadership skills this summer. Previous field trips have included McKinney Falls State Park, Wonder World, South Austin Rock Gym, and Enchanted Rock.
