We can't wait to see our campers this summer! In the last few months, we've been consulting with state and local health officials to ensure that our day campers and our counselors will have a fun, safe experience this summer at YMCA Summer Day Camp.

Please read the following information to learn more about what we're doing to maintain a healthy environment and what you can do before you bring your child to YMCA Summer Day Camp. 

RIDES IN/OUT

Children will remain in this small group with their YMCA counselor rotating to different activities for the week. Our goal is to keep groups together and consistent to decrease the spread of germs.
