why choose Us Parents Trust Us We provide high quality camp experiences for your child, all focused on our Core Values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

Safety

Professional Role Models

The American Camp Association™ (ACA) accredits each of our day camp programs. This independent body establishes standards for key aspects of camp operation, program quality, health and safety of campers. ACA™ accreditation includes an on-site visitation every three years. Additionally, many YMCA Day Camp staff are trained in CPR and First Aid.

Our day camp staff are selected based on their experience, attitude, skills and their ability to accept and demonstrate the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our Professional Role Models attend at least 24 hours of training covering topics including risk management, diversity and behavior management, YMCA Mission and Character Development, child abuse, games, skits and songs, sports education and team building.

Self-Respect Our goal: building self-respect through skill development for all campers. Camp provides worthwhile experiences such as creating unique and artistic crafts, finding animals in their habitat or learning how to properly kick a soccer ball. Camp counselors are trained to highlight teachable moments and emphasize accomplishments and successes in all campers.

Healthy Food At the Y, we believe in healthy living, which includes providing healthy snacks, and in some cases meals, to our campers. We strive to offer fresh fruit, vegetables and other nutritious snacks to our campers. Not all camps will provide snacks during camp hours.

Kids Love Us There’s no place like the Y for kids in the summer. • Make new friends • Spend time outside • Play sports and games • Get messy

• Learn funny songs and skits • BE A KID!

More information & registration: ymcacolumbus.org/daycamp


WE BELIEVE Our Cause Defines Us

We believe our camps should exemplify the Y’s commitment to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We believe creativity, fun and competition should develop the whole person - building healthy, confident, valuescentered individuals.

Youth Development We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Healthy Living Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many familycentered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Social Responsibility We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities.
