Summer Camp

BEST SUMMER EVER!

The YMCA of Columbia camps offer a mix of fun and educational activities aimed at improving kids’ well-being. Our program centers on three areas proven to impact kids’ development: friendship, accomplishment and belonging.

Through the Y’s day camp program, kids participate in fun and educational activities that help them grow.

Campers Will:

  • Learn and master skills that help them realize their passions, talents and potential;
  • Build friendships with new friends and staff role models, adding to their well-being;
  • Help them feel like they belong so they feel safe, welcome and free to express their individuality.

Camp will be held weekly June 8 – August 14, 2020.
