South Mountain YMCA


Summer Day Camp

be who you want to be!

Our Summer Day Camps are rich, learning environments full of new friends and new achievements which foster growth and independence. We designed our camps for children to explore, discover and challenge themselves. We focus on building self-esteem, confidence and social skills while highlighting health and wellness.  Our camps are progressive so that campers can continuously experience new adventures and responsibilities as they grow.

"In two months our son grew so much at camp! He became so responsible, learned how to show he cared for others, found his place and voice in larger groups settings, and had so much fun along the way. The counsellors, specials events and aftercare were amazing. Mature and professional for their age and we felt he was in the best hands. THANK YOU!"

"Camp encourages trying new activities without the fear of judgment.  My daughter left camp with a new self-confidence that is now showing in her school work.  I can’t say enough about the great counselors and the fun and welcoming atmosphere.  That combined with the safe and structured environment makes me a very happy camp parent!  Thank you!!
