The Best Summer Ever
Kids love Y Camp because of our fun weekly themes, exciting activities, creative games and new friends! Parents love Y Camp because of our quality program, safe environment, healthy lunches, learning opportunities, friendly staff, FREE extended hours, and the happy children that greet them at the end of the day!
Y Camp provides youth with supervised activities that teach core values, conflict resolution and leadership skills. Kids have fun while building self-confidence, appreciating teamwork and gaining independence. Day camp activities allow kids to create arts and crafts, explore science and technology, swim, participate in field trips, and appreciate nature.
Summer months are a critical time for learning loss. Kids benefit year-round from Y programs – but it is more critical during the summer months, when kids are at greatest risk of falling behind. The Y recognizes this and is bridging the gap and helping youth overcome barriers related to hunger, health, learning, water safety, and access to safe places.
All camps offer weekly sessions from the end of school throughout the summer (June 12 - August 25) except for the July 4th holiday. So plan on registering for all of them, or just one...it is up to you!
Kinder Camp (entering or just completed Kindergarten)
Perfect for children who are at least 5 years old and are entering Kindergarten, but also packed with enough excitement for those who have completed Kindergarten. Kinder Camp offers age-appropriate field trips, games, crafts, and lots more. This camp has a little more quiet time yet all the fun and activities of Traditional Camp.
*This camp is for rising 1st through 6th graders
The Goldsboro Family YMCA’s Traditional Summer Day Camp Program is aimed at providing a well –rounded experience based on the YMCA’s mission to build healthy spirit, mind and bodies. Our campers are placed in age groups with their peers so that each activity can be most efficient in promoting the mission. Each age group will have well-trained and excited counselors that will guide them through their summer adventures.
*This camp is for middle and high school students
Designed for teens to learn leadership skills, outdoor adventure skills, and sports skills. Campers will still have weekly field trips, enjoy games, crafts, and lots more. This camp will enrich your teen with specific skills and give them all the great experiences that Traditional Camp has to offer. Teen Camp will also give teens the opportunity to see what it is like to be a Summer Camp Counselor through our Counselor Training Program. Teens will be given the opportunity to mentor, under close supervision, younger campers in our camps.
