The YWCA Summer Camp Program offers a wide range of enrichment activities including:
  • Girls Circle: Girls Circle is built on a research-based model proven to increase girls' self-efficacy, body image and social support. YWCA girls in 2nd-6th grade participate in the Girls Circle Program one day a week.
  • Girl Scouts: We have our own on-site Troop that meets twice a month. The troop works on service projects and of course, sells cookies!
  • 4-H Club: Known as the Cloverbuds, this group meets once a month. Children focus on leadership development and community engagement through club meetings and activities.
  • Lego Club: Open to any child in our program, the children meet once or twice a month for an hour to assemble Lego creations based on a theme.
  • Kids for Peace: A select group of children join this nationally recognized organization whose mission is to cultivate every child's innate ability to foster peace through cross-cultural experience and hands-on arts, service and projects.
  • Gardening Club: This club helps children learn the value of growing their own food, and caring for plants and flowers.
  • Field Trips: Children participate in off-site activities one to two times a week such as tennis, bowling, roller skating, park visits, historical tours, horseback riding and more!
