The Y. For a better summer.
At Y Camp, we help children be the happiest and healthiest campers they can be through well-balanced, healthy, summer fun activities. Discovery of untapped skills and potential, recognizing new achievements, and sharing these experiences with new friends, who maybe don't go to your school, helps to expand horizons and creates a sense of belonging and community for all children.
The Y. For a better summer. For a better camper. For a better us.

Most Y camps are ACA accredited, which means we run our camps according to the policies, procedures and practices that have been accepted as the best in the industry. We voluntarily go through rigorous inspections by outside professionals to ensure we continue to exceed state licensing regulations in health, safety, cleanliness, food service, programming, staff qualifications and training, emergency management plans, and more - up to 300 standards in all!
Y Camp team members undergo a thorough review process including "Camp Try-Outs" (a half-day of actual activities and scenarios), reference and background checks, and several interviews. Before working with campers team members will complete a minimum of 30 hours of training that is specific to their role, including first aid, CPR and activity leadership.
