About Our Camps:

Traditional Day Camp

Every Summer has a Story, explore yours at the George I Theisen YMCA. Each week your camper will join their very own huddle group and get to know other campers and counselors from all around the Travelers Rest area. Each summer we work hard to teach our campers the YMCA’s core values. We hope to instill in our campers a sense of respect towards one another, caring words and language to all, honest speech, a sense of responsibility for our actions, and the courage to hold onto their faith. We teach these core values through games, arts and crafts, swimming, learning new skills, singing silly songs, making new friends, and more! Every week has a new, exciting theme, so be ready to dress up every Friday in zany costumes and play themed games. We cannot wait to see your story this summer!
