Theme Camp

Discovery starts here! 


Children will enjoy a different theme each week. Theme Camp will offer 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. Previous field trips have included the Thinkery, Jumpoline, and the Austin Aquarium.
