Gear Up for Camp

YMCA Summer Day Camp, Summer Day Camp Triangle
March 19, 2013

We’re gearing up for camp! That means planning an action-packed, fun-filled summer for your kids. Kids at YMCA camps play, swim, create, score goals, explore nature and make the most of summer days.

That takes a lot of gear! Watch this short video and guess how much fun we pack into summer day camp at the Y. You could win your own Y gear!

Count the gear in the video for your chance to win this bag of Y gear. Here’s a hint: We counted all the equipment and props, but not the illustrations.

Email us at by March 29 with your best guess.

Don't forget to mark your calendar to register for YMCA Summer Camps. Member registration started March 18. Open registration starts April 8. Click here to find a day camp or overnight camp that meets your needs!
