Sports Camp: Northwest Cary

6903 Carpenter Fire Station Road, Cary, NC 27519

We are already planning for the summer and we can’t wait to see your children in 2024! Registration opens Jan. 1 for members and Jan. 15 for non-members.

Sports Camp at the Northwest Cary YMCA focuses on a specific sport, based on the week you choose for your camper. Our camps provide basic training for specific sports, like basketball, dance, flag football, running and soccer. We even offer sessions of Jump Rope Camp led by our national champion YMCA Super Skippers Jump Rope team.

YMCA Sports Camps are filled with specific sports drills and scrimmages with time for swimming and a few traditional camp activities. Pick the sport per week your camper is interested in and watch them improve their skills and burn off energy in a safe environment.

There will be also be some multi-sport weeks.
Olympic Week: Participants will participate in sports such as running, archery, swimming and gymnastics. This week will have an opening and closing ceremony.
All-Star Week: This week will offer an introductory level for a variety of specialty sports, such as pickleball, ball hockey and archery.
Pre-Season Week: This week is for your middle schooler (rising grades 6 - 8). Participants focus more skill development activities in their preferred sport, soccer or basketball.

Soccer and Basketball Camps are for grades 1-5.
Pre-season camp is for grades 6-8.
Flag Football Camp is for grades 3-5.
Running and Dance Camps are for grades 3-5.
All-Star and Olympic Camps are for grades 1-5.

All campers are encouraged to try everything, to do their best and are led by a team of YMCA youth staff and counselors.

You can read more about how we operate our day camps in the YMCA Parent Manual. Details include safety information and links to our medication forms and packing lists.

We can’t wait to see your children this summer. After all, a strong summer means strong kids.

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.
