Preschool Camp (Ages 3-5)

Our trained counselors guide campers through crafts, weekly swimming, outdoor play, games, and other fun activities.

Traditional Camp (Ages 5-12)

Traditional camp is designed for a wide variety of conventional interests that include arts & crafts, group games, nature exploration, swimming, field trips, and more. Most camp activities are held outdoors with indoor activities provided based on the day and theme. Day campers are divided into groups by the grade level they are entering in the fall.

Registrations must be completed by the Wednesday prior to the camp start date for the week. Registrations made after this date will acquire a $10 late fee.

Special Interest Camp (Ages 5-12)

Special interest camps are designed to offer activities focused on a particular interest while incorporating overall traditional Y camp principles. Camp size may be smaller and may be offered either indoors or outdoors based on the specific interest. From 9 am - noon, campers participate in their special interest camp. From noon - 4 pm, campers participate in traditional camp activities.

2023 SPECIAL INTEREST CAMPS:

Arts & Humanities Camps

Our arts & humanities camps encourage personal expression and the freedom to create, and provide new experiences for kids. Creativity abounds at the Y.


Aquatics Camps

Aquatic camps are designed for swimmers of all levels. Your child will become comfortable in the water, increase swimming skills, practice water safety and receive a great start to refining skills while making friends and having fun! Activities include swim lessons, games, water safety skills and splash time.


Sports Camps

Campers spend their day immersed in a specific sport learning fundamental skills and then applying those skills in a game setting. The focus is on introducing and/or improving skills for each sport with emphasis on individual skill development, teamwork, and building self-confidence in an environment that encourages having fun and making friends.

Sports camps include Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, and All Sorts of Sports
