NEW YORK CITY’S YMCA | 2018 SUMMER CAMP GUIDE

ymcanyc.org/camp


OUR VISION Active, engaged New Yorkers building stronger communities.

OUR MISSION We’re here for all New Yorkers — to empower youth, improve health, and strengthen community.


ONE YMCA, A WORLD OF OPTIONS... Dear Parents and Guardians, At YMCA summer camps, children learn leadership skills and develop self-confidence in a safe, accepting, and stimulating environment. They also build robots, go on field trips, shoot hoops, learn to swim, make new friends, and laugh all summer long! Our creative, educational camp programming — structured around the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility — helps campers reach their fullest potential, physically, mentally, and emotionally. All Y camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). The Y ensures that children’s learning and development extends beyond the school year, enriching and complementing their education. New York City’s YMCA offers a wide range of engaging summer day and sleepaway camp options that accommodate all families. You’ll find programs convenient to home and work, and programs that meet your child’s interests and abilities. Children can enroll in just a few weeks at camp, or spend the entire summer with us. All Y camps feature:

• Well-trained staff who serve as positive role models • Activities and games that develop self-esteem and leadership skills • Activities that promote cultural diversity • Lessons in conservation and protecting our environment • Exposure to new age-appropriate, challenging, and fun experiences • An atmosphere that fosters fairness, teamwork, and cooperation • Visits to the city’s top attractions, including zoos, aquariums, parks, and museums • Health, exercise, and nutrition education Last year, the Y proudly served more than 12,000 campers in New York City, where we’ve been helping parents and their children have the best summer ever since 1885. We’re excited to embark on another summer of fun and learning with you and your children. Thank you for choosing summer camp at New York City’s YMCA. We look forward to getting to know your camper!

Just up the hill from Camp McAlister, Camp Talcott provides the perfect next step for pre-teens and young teenagers ready to expand their horizons. Recognizing that teens crave independence, but still need a structured, safe environment in which to express themselves, our program gives teens the opportunity to shape their own camp experience. After sampling a wide range of camp activities in the first days of each session, Talcott campers can choose their favorites each week to explore more deeply. With an eye toward developing our future staff, we focus on fostering responsibility, confidence, and leadership skills among campers, while simultaneously ensuring a fantastic time!
