YMCA DAY CAMP

SUMMER DAY CAMPS: CARING FOR THE WHOLE CHILD

Summer Day camps at the Y are about one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too.

If a child or staff member is diagnosed with Covid-19, all participants will be notified.  Parent or guardians may then choose to either pick up their camper, or to let the camper remain and trust the camp to take appropriate safeguards, when informed by the camp operator that a child at camp has tested positive for COVID-19. There are enhanced risks of campers being in direct contact with anyone age 65 or older for 14 days after the end of the camp session.

 


    Preschool Day Camps (3 - 5 yrs)

    Preschool camps include hands-on learning activities, splash time and tons of fun. Preschool Campers participate in themed weeks with special guests and family events planned throughout the summer. All preschool campers must be fully potty trained; no pull-ups.

    Kids spend at least 30 minutes engaging in outdoor activities.

    Preschool Dates: Will operate Monday through Friday, 6/8/2020 through 8/6/2020

    Preschool Hours of Operation: 7:30am - 5:30pm

    Safety, as always, has been the YMCA’s primary focus when delivering programs to the youth throughout the community, and we will continue to follow the guidelines given to us by industry health experts, CDC, state and local officials, best practices from Ys around the country, and the American Camping Association.
