Summer Day Camp

 

 

South Mountain YMCA Summer 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.  We intentionally design our camps to be progressive, adding new levels of exploration, responsibility and adventure.

Camp encourages trying new activities without the fear of judgment.  My son left camp with a new self-confidence that is now showing in his 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!
