YMCA Summer Camp

 

It’s time for kids to get outside and have fun! At the Y, campers build friendships and engage in physical activity in a safe and healthy environment. In summer 2020, we redesigned our Summer Day Camp programs to ensure the environment adheres to the health and safety regulations put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York State Department of Health, and the American Camp Association.

Programs have been adapted to use physical distancing to foster a healthy environment. Staff help prevent the spread of COVID-19 through regular training and safety updates, as well as wearing personal protection equipment (PPE). The Y has a variety of options to serve kids through summer experiences this year.

As one of the region's largest, most-diverse camp programs, we offer 9 weeks (Monday, June 28 through Friday, August 27, 2021) of endless activities and opportunities to try new things, build confidence, and create lifelong memories. Our trained staff offers a safe, fun, welcoming environment where kids can be themselves to enjoy learning, playing, exploring, and socializing.

Registration for Summer Camp is now open.
