About Our Summer Camp Program

Day camp at the YMCA is like a home away from home, where kids laugh, learn, explore and grow in the outdoors, while creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime. At our summer day camps, kids can make friends, explore their interests, and spend their summer in a safe, nurturing environment.

  • For children ages 5*–12 (*Campers must have completed kindergarten) 
  • Dedicated, well-trained camp counselors
  • Publicly funded childcare participants are welcome
  • Financial assistance is available for those who qualify
  • 1:18 Staff to child ratio 

Our Curriculum

Our school age program offers fun weekly themes that align with Ohio’s K-12 state standards. We use the Second Step curriculum. It is a research-based program specifically designed to meet the needs of our out-of-school time (OST) programs. Built on the foundation of our trusted Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs, this curriculum helps teach social-emotional skills like community-building, empathy, kindness, and growth mindset in our youth.

The YMCA youth summer learning experience includes activities in the following areas: 

  • Arts & humanities
  • Character development 
  • Large motor & fitness 
  • Literacy 
  • Science and Math 
  • STEM 
  • Nutrition 
  • Service-Learning Projects



COVID-19 Safety Measures
