Day Camp allows children 6-12 years old to experience a wide variety of activities and adventures. These are used as tools to enhance a camper’s self esteem, confidence, and ability to interact with others. Children will be placed in appropriate age groups where they will play and work together in a positive atmosphere. Well-trained staff members will stay with the children and provide them with adult role models throughout the week. Day Camp is designed to offer a well-balanced variety of activities to suit the interest and needs of all ages. Our goal is to ensure a safe, positive environment where your child will continue to learn and grow physically, mentally, and spiritually all summer long.

Day Camp is $385 for members and $405 for potential members (week-long session), and includes all activities, breakfast, lunch, snack, and transportation to and from the Y.
