You are here


From our scenic YMCA Camp Hyde to 10 citywide summer camp locations, the Y is the place for fun and adventure.

At camp, your child will:
  • Make new friends
  • Learn new skills
  • Stay physically active
  • Enjoy healthy morning/afternoon snacks
  • Unplug from the virtual world
  • Learn to appreciate the natural world
  • Overcome fears and try new things


Camps at the Y are where summer is


YMCA Day Camps provide a happy, healthy environment for kids to learn and grow. You can count on the Y to provide your child with an AWESOME experience - all in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment. From archery to arts, and canoeing to cannonballs, there’s lots of choices to make your kid one happy camper!

Y camps feature value-based programming led by caring staff who help make every day a memorable adventure. We’re here to inspire kids to work together and play together, creating friendships that can last a lifetime.
