Outrageous fun and tremendous growth— that’s what awaits you at Y Camp.  At the Y, we believe children discover themselves through interactions with others and the freedom to explore.  Y Camp immerses children in a community where making friends is natural, exploring new interests is encouraged, and discovering inner strength is guaranteed.  Camp provides a space where children begin to gain independence and test their wings in a safe, nurturing environment.

This program is packed full of fun activities with plenty of time for making new friendships.  With attentive and well trained staff, campers will enjoy participating in all camp has to offer including swimming, archery, canoeing, climbing the rock wall, shooting down the zip line, arts & crafts, guided hikes, horseback riding, campfires, sports, campouts, and so much more.   Weeks are themed so campers can immerse themselves in their love of Pirates, Myths& Legends, and more.  Theme dates are listed on the registration form.  Drop-off for this program is on Sunday and pickup occurs Friday afternoon.
