The Summer to Discover
SUMMER CAMP Smolenski Park Racine Y
A Positive Experienceâ€Ś
10 Weeks of Summer Fun June 11, 2012-August 17, 2012
Learn and Enjoy being outdoors! The heart of the Racine Family YMCA Day Camp experience is that we focus on fun filled educational opportunities, social Interaction, physical involvement, leadership building, personal growth and creativity. We plan and carry out a variety of activities centered around our weekly themes that reinforce our core values: responsibility, honesty, caring, and respect. Activities such as environmental hikes, swimming, arts & crafts, group games, sports, camp songs, and field trips are designed to promote success, confidence and self-esteem, which are fundamentals in all YMCA youth programs.
Phenomenal Staff The Racine Family YMCA camp staff is highly trained and very committed. References, past work experiences and criminal background are thoroughly checked prior to hiring. All counselors are trained in CPR and Basic First Aid. YMCA counselors are hard working young men and women who are dedicated, experienced, responsible, enthusiastic, positive and fun. The counselor to camper ratio is never greater than 1:12.
Parent Orientation If your child is attending Summer Day Camp, please plan on attending our Parent Orientation on Friday, June 8th from 7 p.m.-8 p.m. at the Racine Family YMCA, 725 Lake Avenue. During the orientation we will go over the rules and regulations for camp, along with basic information that you will need. You will also have the opportunity to meet the Camp Staff and ask any questions that you may have. We ask that all parents and campers plan on attending even if you have participated in our Day Camp previously.
