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.

Day Camp is divided into age-based units to ensure a progression of experiences throughout a child’s years. Day Camp 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 and After Care is offered by Amery Elementary from 7:30-8:30am and from 4:30-6:00pm each day. Contact Amery Elementary for details and to register.

Transportation is available at no cost from Amery Elementary. 469 Minneapolis Ave S. Amery, WI 54001
