Day Camp Adventure Days take place during school release days and are a wonderful way for your child to experience fun outdoor adventures year-round. New and returning campers thrive during fun filled days with camp staff and friends. They’ll learn new skills and build self-esteem while practicing the YMCA’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and equity. Wonderful outdoor and indoor spaces at camp give kids a wide variety of options. Every season offers fun and exciting activities including: climbing, archery, crafts, cross country skiing, nature studies, camp games, and more.
