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.
We know that when kids walk through the doors of the Y, they will discover all they can accomplish, find a place where they belong and build strong friendships. Though each site is unique, every child will have the opportunity to develop the confidence, character and teamwork they need to achieve their full potential.
We're here to provide every child the chance to have new experiences and build confidence in their abilities. We encourage kids to believe in themselves. We're here to give every child the support and guidance to try, to discover, and to learn. Summer is the perfect time to explore new talents and interests.
We're here to make every child feel welcome. YMCA Summer Camp is a place where kids belong and can be themselves. Your child will thrive with the Y, knowing they can relax in a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment.
Over 30 locations are available in Jefferson, Oldham, Bullitt, Floyd and Clark Counties, with options for financial assistance, third party pay and programs for children with special needs.
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe all children should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Financial assistance makes YMCA Summer Camp available to those kids in need.
