Summer Day Camp

Registration for Summer Day Camp is open

Every summer we offer new experiences and create day camp activities for hundreds of youth. From traditional summer camps to preschool camps, kids are encouraged to explore new opportunities and expect fun activities that will not only build skills but encourage lasting friendships and character values for life.

YMCA Day Camp participants experience a variety of safe activities that build teamwork, teach core values, conflict resolution and leadership skills. Camps include weekly themes, field-trips (with the exception of Bar-Y and preschool), swim time, arts & crafts, sports, and more.

Campers spend a majority of the day engaging in outdoor activities. While campers are required to bring their own non-refrigerated, nut-free, packed lunch, two snacks are provided. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.

Thank you to White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics for being a proud partner to the YMCA of Central Kentucky’s summer camps in 2018.
