SUMMER'S COOLER AT THE Y

SUMMER CAMP AT THE DUNELAND YMCA

Get EXCITED—Summer Camp at the Y Starts May 27, 2022!

Y Summer Camp enrollment for next year will open April 1st, 2022! We’re excited to start planning for another action-packed summer, taking place at a Y near you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us using the form at the bottom of this page, and our friendly Youth Program Director will be in touch with you.

YMCA summer camps offer an action-packed, adventure-filled experience, where young people can make new friends while having a whole lot of fun! At Y camp, kids laugh, learn, explore and grow, while creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime.

The Y’s summer camp program creates opportunities for kids to learn new skills, be creative, build self-confidence, and gain independence in a safe, fun, and nurturing environment. For these reasons and so many more, hundreds of area children attend summer day camp at the Y; to belong, achieve, and build relationships. Let the Y be your trusted partner in keeping your children happy, safe, and engaged this summer.

Out of School Learning offers MORE than just chidcare:

  • Homework support
  • Healthy meals and snacks
  • Fun games to release energy
  • Free play to foster creativity
  • Character building mini-lessons on the Y’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, & Responsibility
