Theme Camp offers new experiences mixed with old camp favorites. Campers thrive during various daily activities including organized games, arts & crafts, and much more! Campers will engage in various leadership opportunities through clubs, project-based learning, and LEGO challenges, along with Makerspace Zones such as coding, creating music with Makey Makey equipment, Light and Sound Lab, and participating in STEM challenges. Many activities will focus on the YMCA character values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring.
