SUMMER CAMP 2018

A CAMPMORE THAN JUST

We are committed to providing your child with a safe,
enriching summer camp experience that incorporates the
YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsi-
bility, and Faith. Camp is a fun place for your child to meet
friends and learn new skills. However, at our YMCA you can
also expect that your child will benefit by learning lifelong
skills and become an exemplary person with exceptional
character. Throughout the summer, campers will have the
opportunity to participate in a variety of activities that
teach our character values while being encouraged and
recognized for demonstrating these values throughout their
camp experience. YMCA Character Counts!

At the Y, we know that it is vital that children are engaged
in activities in which they are continuously learning and
provided experiences that build self-esteem. YMCA summer
camps include programs where children learn by using tech-
nology, hands on experience, being active and socializing
with peers. We know that the quality of your child’s camp
experience hinges on the excellence of our staff mem-
bers. Because our staff team means so much to each of
our campers, we focus on selecting, retaining and training
the best Camp Leaders. Our staff members are engaging,
energetic, fun and excited to spend each day teaching your
child.

Enroll your child in a YMCA summer day camp day! It is a
guaranteed investment in your child’s future!

trips, water fun and so much more! Camp is active, the way
summer should be! Campers also swim daily and water
