Day Camp - School Breaks
Our day camp provides a safe, nurturing, and fun environment to engage the interests of all age groups. Day camp will be aligned with current COVID-19 safety protocols. Our day camp is non-stop and our activities reinforce our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The activities that we engage campers in are hands-on and educational, but we add in a ton of fun and silliness. We will follow all COVID-19 State of Oregon guidelines for youth programs.
Program hours are 7:30am-6:00pm
A week of Day Camp Includes:
- Low camper to counselor ratio for individualized attention
- Developmentally appropriate thematic activities, such as cooking projects, science experiments, outdoor living skills, arts & crafts, and more
- Field trips and special guests
- Swim days at the YMCA facility
- Traditional camp games, sports, skits and songs
- Two healthy snacks per day
We work to spend the majority of time outside and weekly field trips will often be to outdoor locations. Each day campers will be assigned a “cabin” with their own counselor to guide them through the day’s themed activities. Our unique program allows campers to work with their fellow cabin mates and camp counselor to design and shape their day.
To make sure that your camper is properly prepared for each day, they should come dressed for the weather, ready to get dirty, and with a Backpack filled with the YMCA’s Required 5: Lunch, Water Bottle, Sunscreen, Swimsuit, and Towel (plastic shopping bags in place of a backpack are not permitted).
