 Camp Highlights

 
Every child enrolled in the program receives:
  • Nutritional breakfast, a hot lunch and a healthy snack
  • Monday-Thursday swimming in the YWCA Pool
  • Access to the YWCA's 3 acre playground
  • 1-2 field trips per week
  • Opportunities to participate in enrichment activities
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!
