Find Your Camp

Jeep Rogers Summer Camp

YMCA camps offer kids a chance to explore places, activities and ideas outside their normal lives. At camp, they discover new talents, new interests and new friends. Parents have trusted YMCA camps for generations because they help foster leadership, self-confidence, and deepen respect for the environments and communities we live in. We offer a huge variety of options and formats, so no matter what your background or summer schedule, there’s a place for your kids at a Y camp.

Camp Information

Northwest Summer Camp

The Northwest Family YMCA offers a full day of summer camp from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Children will play sports, learn new games, make colorful crafts, conduct exciting and sometimes yummy experiments, go swimming in the indoor pool, play in the splashpad, or go for a nature hike. Campers will also have a chance to go on fun-filled field trips throughout the summer.

And every week has a new, exciting theme, so we hope your camper is ready for a summer of creating memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!

Camp Information

Downtown YMCA Summer Camps

When kids experience Y Camp, they experience something new every day. Like the power of a positive mentor, the confidence that comes from trying (and succeeding!), and the importance of healthy, long-lasting friendships. Of course, they don’t know this – they just think they’re having a whole lot of fun!

From water activities and sports to creative arts, each day is packed with age-appropriate activities, new friends, and personal growth. In addition to traditional and specialty camp activities, we are uniquely devoted to physical activity, water safety and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) education. The Y’s environment strives to foster your child’s mind, body, and spirit.
