YMCA Day Camps

Specialty Camps

Summer just wouldn’t be the same without the excitement and adventure of the YMCA Day Camp program. For nearly 30 years, central Ohio children have come together for a summer full of nature, water fun, games, cookouts, arts & crafts, and new friendships! In 2012, the spirit and tradition of YMCA Day Camp continues! Traditional themes, sports themes and a mix of the two are available.

Day camps with sports themes These camps include traditional day camp activities such as arts, swimming and singing camp songs, with a sports theme.

Sports & Specialty Clinics For kids entering Grades 1–6

WELCOME TO CAMP Parents Trust Us YMCA Day Camps provide high quality camp experiences for your child, which help build a healthy spirit, mind and body.

Safety 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. The ACA™ accreditation includes an on-site visitation every three years. Additionally, many YMCA Day Camp staff are trained in CPR and First Aid.

Professional Role Models 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.

Kids Love Us YMCA Day Camps offer you a chance to have fun while building a healthy spirit, mind, and body. Plus you get to... • Make new friends • Play sports and games • Spend time outside • Get messy • Learn funny songs and skits • Have fun • BE A KID!

Self-Respect Building self-respect through skill development for all campers is one of our goals. 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.
