The YMCA Summer Day Camp program for ages six to 12 may seem like child care, but it has become so much more.

“We’re providing a safe place to learn, grow, socialize and have fun,” said Director, Jennifer Cooper.

“Children need to be outside in the fresh air, enjoying nature, learning new things, and socializing with one another in an electronics-free environment and we provide that, five days a week, all summer long.”

The YMCA provides hands-on experiences with all kinds of outdoor activities including fishing, boating, horseback riding, hiking, swimming, zip lining, climbing, archery, air rifle, and field games.
