Summer Camp At The Y

At the Y, we believe that all kids deserve the chance to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why every summer our camps open up to create exciting, safe communities where young people can explore the outdoors, discover new experiences, and build self esteem and social and interpersonal skills.

Through outdoor activities, arts programs, youth sports, service projects and more, kids in our community are learning about themselves and making new friends at Y Day Camp. And while they’re at it, they discover skills and values they can use for a lifetime; skills like teamwork, responsibility, respect and sharing.

Y Guides & Y Princesses

Y Guides & Y Princesses

Ages: 1st – 3rd Graders & Dads
The YMCA Y Guides program focuses on strengthening the father-child relationship through activities that allow fathers to spend quality one-on-one time with their children. It’s through these shared experiences that fathers and their children grow closer and form memories that will last a lifetime.  That being said, Dads, no gift you ever give your son or daughter will mean as much as the time you spend with him or her. And you’ll soon discover that you treasure those special moments as well.

Y Guides is for boys and girls in rising grades 1 – 3 and their dads. Tribes are composed of seven to nine father/child pairs and meet twice a month. One meeting is in a member’s home and the other is a fun outing in the community. Children receive feather awards and patches for their accomplishments.  Upon reaching fourth grade, Little Braves and Princesses may continue in our Trailblazers Program. Tribes are encouraged to meet at least once a quarter and participate in group outings through the year.

Members: $99 per child (Dads are free!)
Program Participants: $113 per child (Dads are free!)
