Campers in Leadership Training is for our oldest campers, age 13 - 15. These campers will enjoy special activities, and hands-on training and leadership skills and development. 

Middle School

Camp High Hopes Middle School is for grades 6 - 8. Older campers enjoy more privileges and freedom than younger campers while still being safe and participating in general day camp activities. 

Kindergarten Readiness

This smaller camp-within-a-camp model is for our rising kindergartners. We take special care of our youngest campers and help prepare them for kindergarten and the additional responsibilities that school brings. Our staff to child ratios are smaller for this camp too to allow for more individual attention.

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.
