East Orange YMCA Day Camps provide a safe and enriching environment for campers to participate in healthy, developmentally-appropriate activities and learning experiences.

Our camps focus on building self-esteem, confidence and social skills while increasing independence and health and wellness awareness.  Your camper will have fun and make new friends while exploring new experiences.

STAFF

We carefully select and screen caring role models who demonstrate a passion for developing confidence and good character in youth.  The Y maintains a commitment to a recruiting process that includes comprehensive training and background checks.  A large percentage of our lead staff are year-round employees with many years of experience and training.

ACA ACCREDITED

As a leading authority in youth development, the American Camp Association (ACA) works to preserve, promote, and improve the camp experience.  In partnership with ACA, the YMCA is committed to ensuring that all YMCA camps provide:

  • Caring, competent adult role models
  • Camp communities committed to safe, nurturing environment
  • Healthy, developmentally-appropriate experiences
  • Service to the community and the natural world
  • Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
  • Discovery, experimental education, and learning opportunities
  • Excellence and continuous self-improvement
  • Facilities, equipment, safety, staff credentials and trainings of the highest standard.

We continue this tradition by providing exciting and fun-filled summer camps for young people with a full range of educational and recreational activities for children between ages 3 and 15.
