CAMP DETAILS SWIM LESSONS Swim lessons are included weekly as a part of swim time. Lessons are taught by YMCA swim instructors in group settings. Remember to bring swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen on designated days.
FIELD TRIPS & BUSING Traditional Camps take one field trip per week. Sports and Specialty Camps travel schedules vary based on the camp. Local school districts bus companies assist in providing transportation for trips. Bus drivers are CDL drivers.
SWIMMING Weather permitting, all camps will enjoy trips to the pool weekly. Most camps swim at our J.A. Walters Family YMCA some camps swim at city pools. Low ratios will exist for all swim trips and lifeguards will always be present in addition to camp staff.
SAFETY Safety always comes first at the Georgia Mountains YMCA, and it begins before the first day of camp. Staff are carefully chosen using in-person interviews, reference checks, and training attendance. The Y looks to hire experienced, caring, enthusiastic, and responsible staff for all positions.
FREE TS T-SHIR
T-SHIRTS While supplies last, the YMCA will provide one t-shirt per camper. Campers are required to wear their Y camp t-shirt on field trip days. Additional shirts can be ordered for $5.00.
