“YMCA summer camp offers children positive developmental experiences and encourages them to forge bonds with each other and with staff, building confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age. Children experience a sense of achievement through opportunities in the outdoors and are welcomed to a physically and emotionally safe and stimulating environment whether in a Y facility or at an outdoor day camp site or park.
Summer campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong healthy living. They have the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor environment where they develop an appreciation of nature. Summer camp builds an interest in community with experiences in local and global cultures where campers gain an appreciation for others different from themselves. Today, summer camp is more vital than ever, with an increased emphasis on child safety, summer learning traditions, personal values and social skills.
As with any Y program, the purpose of summer camp is to help youth grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. Summer camps give young people an experience that can last a lifetime and inspire them to continue an involvement with the Y for years to come.” – Y USA
