Many of our summer programs currently have a waitlist. If you are interested in camp, please add your child to the waitlist and we will contact you if a spot becomes available.

Licensed Full Day Camps

Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social, and educational activities. The Y's summer day camps for youth provide an array of options to interest every child. We value the unique personalities and potential of every child and teen. Day camp creates an environment where kids can be themselves, explore exciting new things, cultivate friendships, and create lasting memories. Our four core values of integrity, health, collaboration, and diversity are essential parts of all our programs. We follow the YMCA's mission of providing programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.

Our full-day camps meet State of Michigan licensing requirements, which focus on health, safety, and program quality. We are committed to providing a wide variety of experiences to all campers. Each week includes games, outdoor activities, art projects, STEAM learning, quiet reading time, swimming, and more!

All camps are open Monday-Friday from 7am-6pm. Camps will be closed on July 4 and 5 for summer 2024.

As role models, staff members are selected for sound judgment, maturity, experience, enthusiasm, and creativity. Training occurs both before and throughout the summer to ensure staff members are providing the best possible experience for campers. All staff members are certified in First Aid and CPR.
