CHESTNUT STREET SUMMER FUN CAMPS

AGES 5-13

Campers will be free from the overly structured, overly scheduled routines of home and school life at Chestnut Street Family YMCA. Summer Fun Camp gives children time to play with much needed free time. Camp is a slice of carefree living where kids can relax, laugh, and be silly all day long. Campers will spend their day being physically active, experience success and become more confident, unplug from technology, develop life-long skills, grow more independent, learn social skills, reconnect with nature, and make friends.
