At the Y, we're crazy about camps. We provide a couple different kinds of camps for kids of all ages, and we don't want newcomers (or parents entering the world of summer child care) to be confused.
- Summer Day Camp - This is a generic term for the weeklong activities we provide for school aged kids during the summer. There's a new session each week, and kids enjoy active games, get swim time, take field trips, and just get to be kids. There's also dedicated time for reading and math practice to help avoid summer learning loss. Summer Day Camp is offered at Caine Halter, Eastside, GHS, and George I. Theisen.
- Specialty Camp or Specialty Day Camp - These are weekly camps that cater to kids' interests. There are science camps, sports camps, swim camps, gardening camps, arts camps, and so much more! Specialty camps are half-day camps, and new sessions start each week.
- Extended Day Camp - When your camper chooses a Specialty Camp, you can make it a full-day experience by adding on Extended Day Camp. When Specialty Camps are done for the day, campers fold back in for afternoon fun with other day campers!
- Camp Greenville or Overnight Camp or Resident Camp - A experience so nice, we named it thrice. Camp Greenville is a YMCA of Greenville location in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's also what we call our Summer Camp program. When kids go to Camp Greenville, or as you might hear us call it, "Camp," they're spending a week or more in cabins, earning grit, and having a week they'll never forget. Specialty adventure sessions are available for older campers, and younger campers can even come up with mom or dad! To find out more, follow the link!
