Camp Outer Limits

441 Mills Park Drive, 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.

YMCA traditional Summer Day Camps are packed with activities, games and fun. 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. Campers spend time inside and outside during the day depending on the weather and activity. Read more about a typical day at YMCA Day Camp.

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

Middle school campers enjoy age-appropriate independence and choose from a variety of activities, including community service projects and team-building exercises.

Camp Outer Limits is located at Mills Park Middle School and is open to kids in rising grades K - 8.

Camp Outer Limits is operated by the Northwest Cary YMCA.

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