Holiday Camp

Winter break is a wonderful time of year. To best prepare, now is the time to think about what your kids will be doing during their two weeks off from school. Well, the YMCA of Austin has the answer! Our Holiday Camps offer care at five locations from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM with trained Youth Development Leaders, who will guide your child through a fun and engaging array of themed crafts, organized games, a field trip, two swimming outings at a Y branch, and other enriching activities!

All activities are based on the Y's character development values and the Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your camper is enjoying enrichment activities under the watchful eyes of skilled and qualified YMCA counselors. Your camper will make new friends, gain confidence, and expand their horizons!
