SUMMER DAY CAMP

AGES 5-13

CHESTNUT STREET SUMMER FUN DAY CAMP

The Chestnut Street Summer Fun Day Camp provides youth with supervised activities that teach core values, conflict resolution and leadership skills. Our kids have fun while building self-confidence, appreciating teamwork and gaining independence.

Kids enjoy creating arts and crafts, exploring science and technology, swimming, gaining an appreciation for nature and better understanding our many cultures. Campers will enjoy a session of water safety at the beginning of summer with YMCA instructors, and we will have monthly Family Nights, an end-of-summer Talent Show and an overnight trip to Camp Piomingo. We also participate in the Library Summer Reading Program.
