YMCA Summer Day Camp Mission

It is our mission to provide a safe, thriving environment for young people to explore personal interests, build self-esteem, develop interpersonal skills, discover the benefits of the outdoors and learn about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle in a relationship based environment.

Goals of our Summer Program

Our cause is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our camp programs, as part of the YMCA, reflect these values and are designed to help our campers grow physically, mentally, and spiritually within a fun camp environment. Well-trained camp staff will lead the campers in challenging activities act as a catalyst for growth in your child.

All YMCA camps are designed to meet the following goals that are established for these three causes. Each camper will:

  • Grow personally
  • Learn values
  • Improve personal and family relationships
  • Appreciate diversity
  • Become better leaders and supporters
  • Develop specific skills and assets
  • Have fun
