Camp Explorer Extras: Apex Elementary

Camp Explorer Extras allows your child to specialize in topics of his or her special interest during activity periods and give the summer some variety. All activity periods focus on a specific topic, and campers take related field trips on Wednesdays.

Campers still enjoy the fun of assemblies, swimming and some camp activities with the rest of Camp Explorer.

Preparing For Camp

Each day is an adventure at YMCA Summer Day Camp. We want to make sure you and your camper are ready for all the fun. Find out what you need to bring to day camp and what to leave at home. 

Our Counselors

YMCA Summer Day Camp Counselors are hired based on their enthusiasm, energy and maturity. All counselors receive training in everything from managing a group of energetic kids to basic first aid. 

Character Counts

At YMCA Summer Day Camp, we reinforce good behavior, model positive character traits and help children grow into responsible adults. 

At Camp, Character Matters

At YMCA Summer Day Camp, campers earn beads for exemplifying our five character traits: Honesty, Respect, Caring, Responsibility and Faith. Campers can earn beads daily by being a good friend, picking up after themselves or leading a camp prayer.
