BRONX YMCA Summer Camp 2013

WHERE KIDS GO TO GROW.


IS YOUR CHILD READY FOR A SUMMER OF GROWTH AND ADVENTURE? The Bronx YMCA is about to embark on yet another fun and exciting summer of day camp. Welcome to all of our returning and new campers to our 2013 Day Camp Program. Y Day Camp uses hands-on learning through indoor and outdoor educational activities. Thank you for choosing our summer day camp for your child. We look forward to getting to know your son or daughter! Sincerely, Dorothy Kardash Day Camp Director


WELCOME TO YMCA

SUMMER CAMP Through programs like YMCA Day and Sleepaway Camp, we nurture your child’s sense of self-confidence and introduce them to positive, fun experiences that build leadership and social skills. Well-trained, qualified staff serve as positive role models for campers. Y Day Camp enhances camper’s self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills through structured (and fun!) activities. Campers develop a true understanding of diversity in an atmosphere of acceptance and approval of the uniqueness of others. Campers are encouraged to be creative, expressive and learn new skills. Summer learning activities offer fun way for campers to read and learn over the summer months. All YMCA Day Camps are licensed by the NYC Department of Health and Accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA). YMCA Summer Camp helps campers ages 4-12 years old and teens ages 13-16 years old grow mentally and physically by participating in challenging activities in both small and large group settings under the supervision of a caring and well trained staff.

SUMMER LEARNING To succeed in school and life, children and young adults need ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential skills. This is especially true during the summer months when children lose much of what they learn during the school year. YMCA of Greater New York Day Camps provide high-quality summer learning initiatives that give children a variety of ways to improve reading and math skills and explore music, drama, art and sports. Through fun, themed curriculum that incorporates key academic components, children will practice and further their academic skills, learn to plan and create projects, learn teamwork and develop new skills. To inspire reading, our program will provide books recommended by the Department of Education for summer reading.

OUR CAMP LOCATIONS The Bronx YMCA Summer Day Camp operates out of 2 Castle Hill Avenue, Bronx, NY 10473. We also use offsite facilities such as local parks and schools to conduct Day Camp. Our Summer Sleepaway Camp is for boys and girls ages 6-16 from all over the world and is located 86 miles from NYC in Huguenot, NY. There are two villages, McAlister (Ages 6-12) and Talcott (12-15), that are located on our 1,150 acre property.
