YMCA Day Camp helps to enrich kids lives by building Assets.
We are committed to providing programs that focus on healthy living, physical activity, and educational enrichment within an atmosphere that fosters the growth of the 40 Developmental Assets in each camper. We accomplish this through national standards for out-of-school time and those set forth by the Search Institute.

CATCH Kids Club is a unique approach to child health developed by the University of TX. CATCH is a research-based program that keeps kids moving, eliminates elimination games, and promotes good nutrition. Follow the link to learn more about CATCH!

Positive Values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Faith are a part of everything we do, every day. It is our goal to help build these values in your child while ensuring safety as our top priority!

Social Competencies: We teach kids to make positive decisions, understand others, and understand their community through our camp programs!

Constructive Use of Time: The YMCA is dedicated to making you and your child's experiences extraordinary. At the end of each day, your child will come home with stories of fun filled adventures. Click here to find out more about Developmental Assets
