YMCA Science Camp

NEW FOR 2024! French Creek Science Camp helps kids expand their horizons and worldly knowledge through an interactive, engaging curriculum that varies week to week. Our wide variety of topics range from life on earth all the way to outer space. Certain weeks include field trips designed to supplement the curriculum.

Not only are kids guaranteed to learn something new and make lifelong memories, but will grow in Spirit, Mind, and Body due to our intentional focus on Character Development. Our trained staff use the YMCA Core Values:  CaringFairnessHonestyRespectResponsibility, Teamwork- as guides to show our campers how to be leaders and lifelong learners. We teach kids how to Play with Purpose!

Open to kids 5-12 years of age, who have completed kindergarten.

We provide needs-based scholarships to make camp more affordable. We take several factors - annual income, the number of adults in your home, and the number of dependents - and use them to determine your fee. Download our financial assistance application here.
