Summer 2023

At Camp Explorer, middle schoolers enjoy a summer of increased confidence, a structured environment with limited technology and lots of friends. Middle school campers spend the day swimming, creating crafts and art, playing sports like kickball, pickup basketball, and soccer and playing games like gaga ball and capture the flag.

They also have opportunities for team building, special guests and age-appropriate projects. Read more about a typical day at YMCA Day Camp.

Camp Explorer: Middle School is held at East Clayton Elementary School until Aug. 11. The last week of camp is held at Christ the King UMC (formerly Christ Community UMC) on Amelia Church Road.

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.
