May 26th-August 21st

Today, day camp is more vital than ever. To deliver on the Y’s commitment to nurture the potential of every child and teen, day camp focuses on character development from the following practice areas:
EMOTION MANAGEMENT
Adults support youth to be aware of and constructively handle both positive and challenging emotions.
EMPATHY
Adults work with youth to relate to others with acceptance, understanding, and sensitivity to diverse perspectives and experiences.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
Adults encourage youth to act, persist, and initiate goals and outcomes even through the ups and down of difficult situations and challenges.
RELATIONSHIP BUILDING
Adults foster experiences where youth plan, collaborate, and coordinate action with others.
RESPONSIBILITY
Adults develop youth to be reliable and committed and to fulfill obligations and challenging roles.

Camp Schedule & Activites

Each age group will have a weekly schedule that will include the following activities below. Daily schedules create an intentional and well-paced experience for campers.

Opening and Closing Assembly. Acknowledging the start and end of each day with a ritual gives campers the chance to assemble as one large group, participate in fun and engaging routines, recognize and celebrate campers and counselors, and experience an inclusive and positive social environment.

Huddle Group. Getting to know campers’ names, interests, and qualities during small-group interactions creates a positive social environment, promotes friendships among campers, and reduces and resolves behavior conflicts and bullying.

Variety Activities. Exploring a range of activities throughout the camp session allows campers to discover their interests and talents. Variety activities tend to be more general than mastery activities, focused less on skill building and more on trying new things and connecting with others.

Every Child deserves the Best. Summer. Ever At the Y, we think Summer is a time every child deserves. The learning gap between the end of the school year and the start of the next school year is increasing with each year. To help with this, we want to ensure as many children can participate in Summer Camp as possible. Financial Assistance applications are available at the Front Desk or online. Assistance is offered on a first come, first serve basis.
