Why YMCA Summer Camps?

As part of the Y’s commitment to strengthening community by nurturing the potential of youth, YMCA camp programs offer a fun and unique experience that gives children and teens the opportunity to discover their full potential, meet new friends, play and create memories that last a lifetime, all while becoming part of a community.

While summer should be a time of exploration, youth are sometimes less involved in activities that stimulate their mind and body. Camp gives children and teens the opportunity to get outdoors and learn about nature, discover new interests, be more physically active, and develop confidence, independence, leadership and social skills.

Nationally, the Y has been a leader in providing summer camp for more than 125 years. The YMCA Summer Camp continues to give youth an enriching, safe experience with caring staff and volunteers who model positive values that help build their kids’ character.

The Y encourages parents to give their child(ren) the experience of camp to help keep them healthy and engaged during the summer. And, to ensure that all kids have this opportunity, the YMCA of the Capital Area has financial assistance programs/offers scholarships to help parents in need send their child to camp.
