Summer Day Camp

WHERE SUMMER HAPPENS!

At YMCA Summer Day Camp, kids have fun while they learn how to make new friends, build new skills, and grow in self-reliance. Studies show that under the careful guidance of trained, certified counselors, kids grow and flourish in positive identity, social skills, physical and thinking skills, as well as the important areas of positive values and spirituality. These concepts of independence and discovery come into play every day at YMCA Summer Day Camp.

See the 2017 Summer Day Camp Schedule:

Little Kid’s Camp (LKC): 3-6 Years Old

Big Kid’s Camp (BKC): 2nd-6th Grades

The YMCA Knows Camp—We practically invented it!

Summer Day Camp has been a long-established YMCA program, encompassing many skill areas such as environmental education, leadership, team-building, character development, and sportsmanship. Weekly activities will include field trips and swimming, as well as an opportunity to participate in a variety of outdoor and indoor activities. At YMCA Summer Day Camp, each day is a new journey! With the careful guidance of our trained staff, campers’ eyes are opened to an exciting summer! They learn core values that will last forever. They explore. They grow. They have fun. And isn’t that what being a kid is all about?

Safe, Licensed Program

The safety of each camper is our primary concern. Every YMCA Day Camp in Albany, Oregon meets very strict internal standards, and most have volunteered to become state-licensed. This means that our YMCA Day Camp volunteers comply with third-party oversight and regulation. This helps further ensure a safe, healthy, and worthwhile camping experience.

Certified, Well-Trained Staff

Having the highest quality leadership staff is our greatest asset. Summer Day Camp leaders participate in an intense leadership training program that emphasizes the care and well-being of campers, quality programming, and building relationships with campers. All staff are carefully selected and screened to ensure that YMCA Summer Day Camp has the best possible role models for your children. Among other selective criteria, all counselors are:

  • CPR certified
  • First Aid certified
  • Child Safe certified
Financial Assistance Available to Qualified Families
