THE BEST SUMMER EVER!
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 fosters achievement, relationships, and belonging. These are essential dimensions of well-being that the Y cultivates through day camp: Discovering skills (achievement). Campers experience achievement when they try different activities, learn what they like, and discover what they are good at. Building friendships (relationships). Campers have the opportunity to form healthy relationships with other children, caring adults, and role models, which helps them feel good about themselves and learn to get along with others. Finding a place to belong (belonging). Campers connect through significant camp traditions and rituals that create a sense of belonging, so they feel included, accepted, and part of a community.
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.
For more information, contact Ivy Averette, Youth & Family Director | 252-972-9622 x. 239.
WELCOME TO ALL
Financial Assistance is available to those who apply and qualify. Annual Campaign Funds are raised by the Y each year to help provide this benefit to the community. The Y recognizes that some individuals and families struggle to pay the rent, put food on the table and buy clothes for their kids due to unforeseen circumstances. They need financial assistance to come to the Y, to stay healthy, to be active and to thrive in life. Through the annual campaign, we make sure that our doors are open to all. Donor support helps thousands of youth and families live healthier and happier lives. They do better in school. They manage their illnesses. And kids get a good square meal!
If you feel that you are in need of assistance to become a Y member or program participant, please ask for a financial assistance form at the front desk. You may also download and print from this page. For more information, contact email@example.com
