Day Camp Oxbow is a wonderful place for your child to experience fun, outdoor adventures this summer! In partnership with Olmstead County, Day Camp Oxbow provides a week packed full of exciting activities in this beautiful setting near the Zumbro River.

Camp hours

9:15am to 3:30pm, Monday through Friday

Located at Olmstead County’s Oxbow Park and Zollman Zoo, Day Camp Oxbow is a 20-minute drive from Rochester, MN. Campers entering grades K-6 in the fall enjoy traditional day-camp activities.

In small, age-appropriate groups, kids build self-esteem, learn new skills, and practice the YMCA’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and equity.


Need-based scholarships called Personal Pricing Plans can help make camp more affordable. A Personal Pricing Plan considers annual income, the number of adults and dependents in your household and other factors to determine your fee.

Program Access

The Y is committed to the policy that all persons should have equal access to its programs, facilities, and enjoyment without regard to race, ability, creed, national origin and sex. The Y will accommodate special needs into existing programs to the extent that financial and physical resources permit. So we may provide a positive experience, please contact the Y if your child has any special needs requiring any accommodation. 

Accommodation Process

Consideration is given to the individual needs of every child and the ability of the program to meet those needs. Please inform the Y during the enrollment process if you or your child requires any special accommodation. It is helpful for a smooth program transition to have a conference prior to enrollment. This information enables the Y to better meet your needs or those of your child, within available resources and to the extent reasonable. All staff that will be working with a child with special needs will be informed of how to care for or meet those needs in a timely fashion through a meeting or written notice.
