Outdoor Adventure Day Camp

Remember camp as a youth?  For well over a century, YMCA camps around the country have been creating memories for children that truly last a lifetime!  YMCA camps have helped thousands of Y campers have fun, make new friends, learn to appreciate the environment, develop leadership skills, and to grow as a person in a unique outdoor life setting.  Day Camp has all the benefits of summer camp and you still get to go home every night.  Each session is limited to the number of campers per week.  Staff ratio is 1 counselor to 14 campers.  Camper groups will be separated into two categories:  6-9 years old and 10-13 years old.



Archery, orienteering, swimming, fishing, canoeing, nature studies, crafts, team sports, hiking, survival classes, team building skills and much more.  There is a new experience for all.
