YMCA camps create lasting memories.


For generations, YMCA camps have provided children with rewarding experiences and a lifetime of memories. Whether you’re looking for traditional day camps or specialty camps that focus on sports, arts or other activities, the Y is the place. Our camps feature themes, field trips, arts and crafts, songs, games, and much more. Venture outdoors, learn new skills, have intriguing cultural experiences, work with others, and make new friends at camp. All activities are carefully designed for youth entering grades K-10 & supervised by our well-trained staff.


Summer Day Camps

Each traditional day camp is age-specific and offer youth greater challenges with every year. Activities revolve around weekly themes and include outdoor games, sports, swimming, craft projects, songs, skits and special events. Trips to local parks and highlight trips round out each week to provide campers with experiences they'll never forget! We are constantly looking for ways to improve your child's experience. Please direct all the feedback and suggestions to southwest@ymcasv.org.
