EXPLORATION, ADVENTURE, AND MUCH MORE!

Summer Camp 2012

Salem YMCA


Summer is the time to discover! Summer Camp plays an important part in the lives of our community’s youth as they develop towards adulthood. Children realize important life lessons and make memories each day as they learn from their surroundings and peers. In a Y camp, kids make friends, have fun and stay active while they discover who they are and what they can achieve. Whatever interest your child has, there is a Y camp for them. Lead by caring, highly trained staff, you can rest assure that your child is in a safe, nurturing environment. Our camps help kids grow to become happy, healthy adults with the self-confidence to accomplish anything they set their minds to.
