TRADITIONAL CAMPS offer exciting opportunities to explore the world we live in as well as make new friends. This is an outdoors-based camp filled with laughter and fun. The children will have days filled with games, trips, and swimming. Campers will begin to develop relationships, a sense of belonging, and achievement.
•   PRE-K  CAMP  SUNSHINE  is a half-day camp for kids ages 3-4. Your child will enjoy theme weeks, group reading time, appropriate skill building activities and swim lessons. This camp is held from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM in the Child Watch area at the J.A. Walters Family YMCA. Parents can choose a three day or five-day option. Space is limited. (Must be potty-trained)
•  KINDERGARTEN CAMP is designed for our rising Kindergarten students (must be 5 years old). This camp will have the basic traditional camp elements but will be tailored to fit the needs of our youngest campers. Campers will learn to work and play within a group, cooperation, and begin learning about taking care of personal needs. Campers will experience riding a bus, field trips and transitions from one activity to another.
SPECIALTY CAMPS are designed to bring a week of creative fun to the children. Each week has a different theme or activity and is focused on that activity throughout the week. The children will still enjoy the fun elements of camp, like swimming and playing with their friends while focusing on something they really enjoy. Each camp has a minimum number of participants required for the camp to be offered. (Campers will swim daily unless there is a field trip.)
SPORTS CAMPS offer boys and girls specialized sports training and are designed to teach sports skills, fair play, teamwork and sportsmanship while reinforcing the values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. Each camp has a minimum number of participants required for the camp to be offered. Campers will swim daily unless there is a field trip.
