Kids enjoying themselves at a children's summer camp

Have an Unforgettable Summer at Metro YMCA

Summer is an exciting time for young children. They have the chance to get out of the house, explore the world around them, and make new and lasting friendships. You can give your child aged 2-4 an unforgettable summer with one of the best preschool camps in the Wayne, NJ area. Campers at Metro YMCA's ABC Summer Camp get the opportunity to experience camp in a secure, nurturing environment. Our team provides a well-rounded and safe camp experience for all participants. The YMCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit social services organization dedicated to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We work toward this mission by providing top-notch, educational, and fun summer camps for preschoolers.

Your Child Will Enjoy Our Fun Summer Camp Activities

At this summer day camp for kids, there's no shortage of things to do and see. We're committed to offering a wide range of activities to excite each of our campers. Every day, they'll participate in a different activity. Our youngest campers will work on their swimming skills three days a week, and our oldest participants get to swim every day. Other activities children enjoy throughout the camp include arts and crafts, cooking, movement, and sports. Those participating in the ABC Summer Camp will also have the chance to embark on special field trips to zoos or theme parks and enjoy in-house performance events.

Don't Miss Our Theme Weeks!

Each week, our staff organizes different themes for our young campers to enjoy. These differ year to year, so what we offer this summer may not be offered next time. Don't let your child miss out on this year's exciting and educational theme weeks! Some examples of themes we may use include Stars + Stripes, Rainbows Rock, Dinosaur Rawr, Pirates + Princesses, and Spirit Week.

Our Staff, Facilities, and Safety Measures

At Metro YMCA, we're committed to employing only the best junior and senior counselors and administrative staff to work on our summer camp programs for kids. Our dedicated team is highly-trained and experienced with caring for children ages 2-4. We're also proud to operate an expansive campus with plenty of facilities. These include, but aren't limited to, a gymnasium, swimming pool, tennis courts, and sports fields. We know that a large facility comes with many safety and sanitation concerns. For our post-COVID-19 reopening, we've put numerous standards in place for keeping our grounds clean and disinfected. You can view our new policies here or talk to our team for more information.

We're an ACA-Accredited Summer Camp Program

Metro YMCA's camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). Accreditation from this organization means that our camps and activities uphold high standards for camper experience. Because of our association with ACA, you can have peace of mind knowing we're committed to the following ideals, among many others:

  • Providing caring adult role models
  • Holding camp activities in a safe and nurturing environment
  • Presenting opportunities for leadership and growth
  • Maintaining a standard of excellence and continuous self-improvement
