Chapel Hill Y Specialty Camp

980 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Chapel Hill, NC 27514

For rising grades 2 - 7, YMCA Specialty Camp gives campers the opportunity to explore new interests, going beyond the basics and building new skills in activities based on theme weeks. From cooking to science, theater to art, campers get hands-on experience on the topic of the week.

At YMCA Summer Day Camp, we take fun seriously. We know when kids are engaged and entertained, they learn and retain more. Our camps provide opportunities for children and teens to discover new interests, make new friends and develop strong values.
 
Our college & high school-aged counselors are role models, committed to providing opportunities for every camper to thrive and discover what makes them unique.

And remember, when you join the Y as a member, you can save up to 20% on program fees.

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.
