Summer Camps at the Capital Area YMCA are all about creating memories that will last a lifetime. Summer day camp is the perfect place to explore the great outdoors, learn new skills, foster independence, and meet new friends!  Whether this is your first summer with us or your seventh, each summer guarantees you fun, laughter, and new adventures. We know that you have a lot of choices for summer camp and we hope that you choose us. Friendship is at the heart of our camp family. From the moment campers step into our program, counselors focus on helping them build friendships and improve their social skills. Activities become more fun when done with friends. Ask our campers for the #1 reason they come back to camp each year. They’ll tell you that they are enthusiastically returning to see their old friends and make new friends!  That’s what our summer camp is all about!

An incredible camp experience is created by our amazing staff, many of whom were campers themselves. Our dedicated, well-trained staff members aim to make the summer camp experience memorable and transformative for every camper. Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. The YMCA’s core values are the foundation of our programs. Each counselor understands that his or her job is not only to teach activity skills, but also to help our campers develop life skills. Through a wide range of activities, staff teach problem solving, communication, compromise, sportsmanship, persistence, and self-reflection.
