Camp TOGA

 

Welcome to Camp TOGA!

The Saratoga Regional YMCA’s Summer Day Camp and Adventure Camp programs serve school-age children in 10 one-week sessions. Children may attend all 10 weeks of camp, one week, or any combination of weeks. (Adventure Camp replaces our Travel Camp program offered in previous years.)

Full-Day Program

Our full-day camp program is open 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM, with the majority of the age appropriate activities taking place 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Why Camp Toga?

  • Peace of Mind: We provide families with a safe place for children to enjoy their summer. Campers are supervised by our well-trained staff at ratios of 1:10 at all times.
  • YMCA’s four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are instilled in all our campers.
  • Thoughtful programming that builds healthy minds, bodies, and spirits—daily.
  • Fun: Campers will enjoy group games, arts and crafts, sports activities, huddle time, STEAM activities, free play, and much more, including plenty of time in the great outdoors.
  • Educational and Engaging: All campers also get to experience weekly visiting workshops or field trips as well. Campers are grouped in units according to grade and age. 

New in 2020!

This year Camp TOGA and Adventure Camp will include the following:

  • Challenge by Choice Club: Sign in daily with our staff and then have your camper CHOOSE their afternoon club! Clubs will include all sorts of staff led activities from running, drama and draw, book clubs, sports clubs, and more!
  • Visits to Saratoga State Park: For grades 3 an up, campers will have the opportunity to walk to the park weekly and experience things like geo-caching, hiking, spring tours and more! 
  • Fun New Themes and Field Trips: Each week will have a different theme. (A field trip list will be announced soon!)
  • Leaders Club: This year we are introducing the Leaders Club to our Adventure campers.
  • So Much More! Stay connected! Camp Toga and Adventure Camp have their own presence on social media. It is a great way to receive the most up to date information about new camp programming, and also stay connected with your child's daily activities as we post daily throughout camp season. Please take a moment to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram.
