YMCA Teen Summer Camps are designed for campers ages 13-17 and provide teens the opportunity to learn valuable skills, try new things, and make new friends - all while remaining part of the exciting summer camp environment. From STEAM programming to Theater to Podcasting, our camps offer something for all interests and abilities.

There are no YMCA Teen Summer Camps in 2024, but check back soon for upcoming opportunities. Click below to sign up for other YMCA day camps.




Welcome to Inclusion & Adaptive Support Services! Whether you're a returning or first-time Summer Day Camp participant, fostering a supportive and enriching environment for children with diverse abilities is the primary focus of inclusive and adaptive programs. The Gateway Region YMCA provides trained staff and accessible spaces to help ensure camp opportunities for every child. When you register online for Summer Day Camp, indicate any needs your child may have and the branch will email you more information and the required forms.
Key Points to Note:

  • Registrations are processed based on the order of receipt at the branch and subsequently by the organization's Inclusion & Adaptive Support Services department.

  • To avoid delay in the registration process, fully complete and provide all requested documents.

  • Please allow at least two weeks for processing, especially during peak Summer Day Camp enrollment times.

  • Your child's start date depends on the staffing and capacity situation at the branch, regardless of their support needs.

  • We ensure information is securely handled per HIPAA guidelines.

  • Additional information may be requested.

The Gateway Region YMCA is committed to serving individuals without discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age, military or veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other legally protected factor. Our goal is to provide inclusive opportunities for all community members in our programs. While we make every effort to accommodate, there may be situations where a child's needs exceed the scope of our recreational, non-therapeutic programs.


At the Y, we stand by the belief that everyone should have the chance to be part of the Y, irrespective of their financial means. To make this possible, we offer financial assistance to those who qualify, supported by generous contributions to our Annual Campaign. Access the application here.
