Specialty Day Camps

WELCOME

Specialty Camps will provide opportunities to teach your child specific skills or provide them with new experiences. This is your summer to learn new skills and discover hidden talents!

At Y , we are here to make your kids feel welcome and to help them quickly realize this is a place where they belong and can be themselves – try new things – learn new skills – make new friends – and be a part of something great! 

A camp experience can be a powerful tool for personal growth. Knowing this, we strive to offer the highest quality camps with the most diverse opportunities. Great care goes into creating a fun and safe environment. We work hard to hire staff of the highest integrity, personal and spiritual maturity, and are enthusiastic about camp. All staff are fully screened and background checked and receive training in first aid, CPR, safety and child abuse prevention, character building, and program implementation. You can depend on the Y to make sure that camp is well supervised.

We hope that you and your family will join us and help make it their best summer ever.

Sincerely,
Rhonda Elmore
Vice President of Youth Development
