Summer Mini Camps
ADVENTURE IS AWAITING YOU!
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 downs 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.

Closing the Learning Gap
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. This issue will be even more prevalent this year with the COVID-19 crisis. Our curriculum includes 2 hours per day of enrichment time that, through research, has been proven to help close this learning gap.

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
ACTIVITIES & KEEPING CAMPERS SAFE
Each age group will have a weekly schedule that will include the following activities below. Daily schedules create an intentional and routine experience for campers. Camp will be full of fun, learning, and adventure, in a safe way for all.
Healthy Breakfast, Lunch & Snack Provided.
Swim Time Each Week.
Learning Enrichment Time Our curriculum includes 2 hours per day of enrichment time that, through research, has been proven to help close this learning gap.
Bead Time Fun incentive programs will be included during huddle group times to encourage campers to build character through the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
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, focusing on trying new things and connecting with others. Mastery activities give campers a chance to build on an activity that they discovered as an interest or talent during their various activities! They will be able to practice their mastery at least three times during a camp week, helping them build a sense of achievement.
Huddle Groups: Campers will remain separate at all times throughout the day to limit the spread of germs and to help maintain social distancing.
Morning and Afternoon Assembly: In order to maintain a fun and inclusive camp culture while maintaining strict social distancing guidelines we will be moving our assemblies to our main gym! We will keep the spirit alive with dance parties, counselor contests, and camper recognition!
Spirit Day each week: We are having spirit days each week that coincide with our weekly theme. We will have fun challenges, games, and adventure courses to be completed and our campers are encouraged to dress up for the day!
