Creativity starts here! 

YMCA Kinder Camp is perfect for campers who have yet to attend Kindergarten and need a slower pace with a little more quiet time. Campers benefit from an afternoon quiet/nap period as well as lower camper-to-staff ratios. Campers enjoy changing weekly themes, two trips to the pool each week, and a theme-related field trip. “Adventures Through Time” theme will inspire a variety of activities and children’s literature this summer. Y programs meet children’s individual needs by offering cognitively, socially, and physically enriching curricula. Activities include building blocks and construction, dramatic play, reading, science and math, arts & crafts, creative expression, outdoor play, games and puzzles, and much more!
