Finley Day Camp: Sports Camp

Sports Camp at Finley Day Camp is a skill development camp in which campers will choose weekly between soccer, basketball and flag football. Sports Camp athletes will spend morning sessions honing in on their sport-specific abilities and use the afternoons to put them into practice in live game scrimmages. Campers will still get the traditional camp feel with swimming, field trips and other awesome activities, all while becoming well-rounded athletes.

Sports Camp counselors bring athletic experience at the high school or college level. During the summer, campers will get to explore the athletic programs around the area and learn from some of the best in their sport.

Jump Rope Camp is led by the YMCA Super Skippers Elite Team, winners of 6 consecutive USA Jump Rope National Championships.

Once assessed, swimmers wear a swim band indicating where they are allowed in the pool. If a child is assessed as a non-swimmer, the Y will provide a Coast Guard approved life jacket.
