New York City’s YMCA Day Camp Open House
May 16, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
There is an energy and magic to summer camp that cannot be replicated. Throughout the gyms, classrooms, playgrounds, campgrounds, buses and trains, Y campers can be heard laughing, singing, playing and learning. Y Camps provide a positive and exciting camp experience, in a safe and accepting environment. Our programs enhance campers’ self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills through structured activities and interactive themes that tap into the curiosity and wonder in each of our campers.
Y summer camp themes have included: “Time Travelers”, “Backpacking Around the World”, “Stemology”, “Exploring the Islands”, “Hero’s Quest”, “I Can Make a Difference”, and “Imaginarium.” Each week, songs, activities, and trips are designed to explore and embody the camp theme.
Our staff go through a rigorous training process to ensure a safe and positive experience for each child and teen. Through the creativity of our amazing staff, our goal is to transform a gym space into an Olympic stadium, a table into a gourmet kitchen, a multipurpose room into a Broadway stage; and to transform a summer camp into a place of discovery, friendship, and joy.
Our camps are accredited by the American Camping Association.
