Dates:  June 24 - August 23, 2019



Our campers will gain new knowledge, skills and abilities that help them realize their passions, talents and potential. Progressive skill clinics will build confidence and assist campers to discover who they are. 



Camp is all about developing good relationships. Campers will make new friends and form positive relationships with adult role models.



Our camps create a sense of community where kids feel safe, welcome and can express their individuality.

New Age Groups: We are changing the age groups of the Seekers and Explorers to even the group sizes. Seekers will incorporate 2nd and 3rd graders: Explorers will incorporate 4th and 5th graders. Each group will have a capacity of 50 kids per week.


More Nature Focus: We will be adding a day out at Camp Saturna each week (in addition to our two full weeks) to provide more time outdoors. Our field trips will also explore the regional State Parks taking advantage of all the amazing natural resources available to us.


Challenger Camp Outs Return: We have added camp outs at State Parks back into the Challenger age group programming. Week 6 and 8 will include an overnight camp out at Deception Pass and Larrabee St. Park (respectively).


Swim Lessons Available: The Y will be offering swim lessons immediately following the camp day. If you would like your child to attend those lessons, camp staff will walk them to the pool area in time for class and parents will pick them directly up from those lessons. You have to choose Bellingham as your pick up location. Swim lessons are Monday-Thursday 5:00-5:30 for two week sessions, beginning July 8th.
