YMCA SUMMER CAMPS
This summer—more than ever—kids need to get outside, get active and put down devices!
YMCA Summer Camps offer one of the most powerful learning environments and can be a place where a child’s social education and independence takes place. They provide children with the opportunity to try new activities and when they succeed—they build self-esteem and confidence. Children also build on their teamwork and problem-solving skills by being part of a supportive community and partaking in activities together.
Although still structured, summer camps are more relaxed than the school routine and offer time and freedom for spontaneous play. The Y provides healthy eating, physical activity, fun in nature, arts and crafts, swimming and much more!
"I love how active the kids are. My daughter comes home worn out from having so much fun!”
Campers are challenged and encouraged to grow every day by nurturing, caring adults, who practice the Y’s Character Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Counselors are well-trained professionals and lead campers in a safe and healthy environment. You can read more about our health and safety protocols here.
"The staff has been amazing, helpful, positive and energetic!”
Kids will love being out of the house for week or the whole summer at our day or overnight camps offered throughout Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana.
