Camps: Friendships, Accomplishments, Belonging


YMCA Camps: Kids Discover, Play and Learn

Camps at the Y share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids and teens have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence and make lasting friendships and memories.

Summer Specialty Camps

Led by our various Y locations and provide fun activities, games and more. Youth can develop a greater passion or try something new.

*These camps typically do not run every day of the week, and they end earlier than our summer day camps.

Virtual Camps

As we navigate through this summer, we want to ensure that our campers still have the opportunity to enjoy meaningful activities where they can learn new skills and engage in fun experiences. To do that, our team has been working to create a fun, daily virtual camp. Through the virtual camp, campers will receive a daily schedule of activities including crafts, STEM, physical fitness/sports and character development. Combined with online engagement, campers will maintain social interaction with other children their age. Whether you choose one week or all, virtual camp is our way to bring camp to you!

Best Summer Ever

To deliver on the Y’s commitment to empowering the potential of every child, our program helps campers discover what they are passionate about, form healthy relationships, and obtain a sense of belonging.

“Mom! They let me be me and like me just the way I am.”

We get so many great comments from both campers and parents each year. Summer camp provides children with a community of caring adults who help build self-respect and a safe environment where a kid can be a kid. The Summerville Family YMCA sets the highest standards in resident camping through programs that match the interests and abilities of each camper.

We know that selecting the right summer camp for your child is an important decision that we hope will last for many years. If you have any questions about our programs please contact one of our program directors:
