At YMCA Cedar Ridge Day Camp, your child will have a summer to remember outdoors. Campers are placed into groups to connect and create long-lasting friendships. Weekly outdoor adventures encourage campers to set goals, challenge themselves, overcome obstacles, achieve more and have fun. Cedar Ridge offers hiking, exploring, arts and crafts, canoeing, and, of course, camp songs! Your camper will leave as a part of our Cedar Ridge family forever!
