Day Camp like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
With Healthy Living experiences woven throughout, camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership. The Day Camp experience is built on the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
DayCroix is divided into age-based units to ensure a progression of experiences throughout a child’s years. DayCroix offers children the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of traditional camp activities. Camp begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00p.m. Before and After Care is available each day. Before Care is from 7:00-9:00 a.m. and After Care is from 4:00-6:00 p.m. There is no After Care on Thursday afternoons due to Family Night.
Please note, there will be no programs offered July 4 & 5th
