Summer Day Camp Information

At Summer Day Camp we make a positive impact on our campers and families by nurturing the potential in each and every child. We strive to partner with families to provide growth and positive youth development by:

  • Helping campers to develop new friendships
  • Exposing campers to new skills and activities
  • Fostering positive interactions with people who may be different than ourselves
  • Building self-esteem, confidence and independence
  • Practice decision-making skills
  • Providing a safe place where every camper feels as though they belong
  • Hiring staff who act as positive role-models through their words and actions

Say goodbye to preschool! Pathfinders (sometimes referred to as "K-Camp") is designed specifically for children entering kindergarten in the fall! 

Pathfinders will get to know their future classmates as they use teamwork and play to overcome obstacles and strengthen their skills as we help them down the path of self- discovery. Our youngest campers spend their days learning, playing, and seeing firsthand what it means to be a kindergartener! (Available at select locations)


Our Explorers are children entering 1st and 2nd grade. No longer the youngest campers on site, Explorers look ahead to grow while learning what it takes to be leader. 

Explorers are independent, creative, active campers who are always on the go! Our camp counselors encourage inquiry and exploration as they navigate through the uncharted weeks of summer! 


Trailblazers are made up of campers entering 3rd through 5th grade. Trailblazers take the next big step, earning more independence, more opportunities, and "bigger, better" activities! 

Armed with confidence, creativity, and a passion for choosing their own path, Trailblazers delight in getting to work with their camp counselors to map out their perfect summer!


Rangers are campers that are entering grades 6th through 8th. As the elders of camp, they are challenged to take their leadership skills to the next level. 

Rangers are young adults and are treated as such. Teaming up with our Teen and Family Department, our camp counselors plan the most engaging and advanced activities that campers will forget they aren't on their phones! 

At camp, you always fit in, just for being you.  This is what the Y's Summer Day Camp is all about.  Our camp counselors ensure that kids get more out of summer; more friends, more exploration, and more achievement. Being a part of a community that is built on these foundations is an immensely powerful experience that we can’t wait to share with you and your camper!
