It feels like we just celebrated the New Year, but it’s already  February. I’m not here to alarm anyone, but summer will be here before you know it! That’s a good thing if you’re a student! There’s a whole 10 weeks of summer vacation to enjoy!

But if you’re a parent of a student, it might make you a little anxious. Summer? Already?! What will you do with your children for those 10 weeks?

Relax. We’ve got you covered.

Register your kids for Summer Day Camp at the Y We’ve got 10 weeks of activities planned in our Traditional Day Camp programs. And there are dozens of specialty camps to choose from as well, including

  • Arts camps
  • Sports camps
  • Science camps
  • Aquatics camps
  • And many more!

Find your camps in our Day Camp brochure. You can get one at your Y, request one be mailed to you here, or browse online here.

The best time to register for Summer Day Camp is right now. Registration is open, and space is limited. So don’t wait for summer to be here before your register!

Register at the Y’s Member Services desk. Register at the Caine Halter Family Y downtown, Eastside Family Y in Taylors, the George I. Theisen Family Y in Travelers Rest, or the Y Program Center-GHS or GHS Family Y in Simpsonville. To save time, you can print out your registration form here.

What you need to bring with you to register Some camps require full payment at the time of registration. Others only require a registration fee to get started. The brochure will tell you. As a rule of thumb, specialty camps require full payment at the time of registration. If you have a camp that requires a deposit, you can pay the balance in bits and pieces all the way up to the Wednesday before that camp begins when the full balance is due.

After you register, you’ll get weekly emails from the Camp(s) you registered for. These emails include important info, such as weekly theme, field trip information, and other important information.

One last thing. It’s a really good idea to watch the Day Camp orientation videos to understand some of the procedures and inside baseball items that you need to know. You can find those videos here.

We’re excited about this summer, and we hope you and your children are! If you have any questions about summer day camp at the Y, email or call us at 864-412-0288!
