Y-Zone Summer Camp

New this summer, the Y has revamped summer programming to offer more options for local families. Now parents can choose from two convenient locations - Downtown OR the Y-Zone! Both options include a summer packed with fun and enriching activitites, including field trips, swimming, sports, and activities. 

Entering 1st Grade - age 12: Y-Zone Summer Camp is designed to provide an amazing camp experience for kids of all backgrounds in a safe environment with positive role models. Children will build confidence and develop an appreciation for the community they live in while they enjoy nature walks, fun educational field trips, and many outdoor team building and physical activities. Camp activities will include swimming, field trips, arts & crafts, nature hikes, sports, educational activities, and more. 

For Ages 13-16: Teens can be a part of our Counselor in Training (CIT) program. Kids have the opportunity to shadow our Day Camp leaders and develop and practice leadership skills through hands-on interaction with younger children. With an emphasis on building self-esteem, setting goals, and developing leadership skills, this is the perfect program for future camp counselors.
