CONFIDENCE CURIOSITY CHARACTER

2014 Summer Day Camps YMCA SOUTHCOAST


Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is a great summer to Discover Camp. We appreciate your consideration in enrolling (or re-enrolling) your child in one or more of our YMCA Southcoast Day Camps for the summer of 2014. Y Day Camp offers children positive developmental experiences and encourages them to forge bonds with each other and with our staff, building confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age. Children experience a sense of achievement through opportunities in the outdoors and are welcomed to a physically and emotionally safe and stimulating environment whether it be in one of our full service Y facilities or at an outdoor day camp site. Day campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong healthy living. They have the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor environment where they develop an appreciation of nature. Day camp builds an interest in community with experiences in local and global cultures where campers gain an appreciation for others different from themselves. Today, Day Camp is more vital than ever, with an increased emphasis on child safety, summer learning traditions, personal values and social skills. As with any Y program, the purpose of Day Camp is to help youth grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. Day Camps give young people an experience that can last a lifetime and inspire them to continue an involvement with the Y for years to come. YMCA Southcoast has been a leading provider of quality day camp programs for over 50 years. We’re here to help you in selecting the right camp opportunities for your child. We welcome your visit to our camps, to meet and talk with the Camp Directors personally. Please let us know how we can help you make a Y camp experience a reality for your family this summer. Sincerely,

Nancy LaRue Bonell COO/VP Operations

PARENTS TRUST US

YMCA SOUTHCOAST Day Camps provide a happy, healthy environment for children to learn and grow. Children have the opportunity to build self-confidence, independence, and creativity, while parents have the peace of mind knowing their children are in a safe and enriching place.

SAFETY ∙

Accreditation & Licensing

YMCA Southcoast day camps operate according to standards set forth by the American Camp Association (ACA). ACA ® accredits each of our day camp programs. The ACA believes “Camp gives kids a World of Good ” because camp is a building block to the successful development of young people. 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. Our partnership with ACA means we promote fun and learning in a safe environment. Our campers are staffed by counselors who are genuinely interested in working with children—certified in First Aid and CPR. Each staff member must pass a rigorous background check before they start working at camp. In addition, each camp complies with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Health and local boards of health.
