Summer Adventure Camp

Registration Begins March 1, 2017

Register Online or at any YMCA Welcome Desk

YMCA Camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends.

Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations, because, they are experiences that help foster leadership, self-confidence and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. Adventure Camp offers the fun and freedom of being outdoors while learning new skills and making new friends.

Camp Open House

Saturday, June 17 from 1:00-3:00pm at the Sudden Valley Program Center.

Join us to meet your Adventure Camp Staff, see where camp is held and learn more about what fun we will be having this summer.

Seekers: Grades 1-2 Fall 2017

Seekers stay active and stretch in new ways at summer camp. Wether it's learning a new skill or game, working on a project with new-found friends or just enjoying some undirected play time, camp provides room to grow and help kids build resilience and confidence.

Explorers: Grades 3-5 Fall 2017

Each week offers adventures with exciting themes that are woven into the day's activities. Exploreres learn to respect and enjoy nature while having fun, hiking, exploring, crafting, swimming, field trips and much more.

Challengers: Grades 6-8 Fall 2017

Explore our community, develop a new talent like art or tennis, or head outdoors for an adventure. Each week offers Challengers opportunities for friendship and exploration in engaging activities with weekly themes shaping the days plans.

Y staff provide a challenging and team-based camp designed specifically for tweens. Some weeks will include Camp Outs at our State Parks.
