OUR PROMISE TO PARENTS - Your kids will be safe, make new friends, learn new skills, and most of all, have fun! 

Join the YMCA of Greater Dayton for weekly opportunities from May-August 2022 for a fun-filled summer for your child (session dates vary by location)! Whether you choose one week, a few weeks, or all summer, YMCA Summer Day Camp offers a flexible schedule and provides fun and enriching activities for your child.

YMCA Summer Day Camp provides positive outcomes through play with an emphasis on social emotional growth.  Our quality staff will guide them through outdoor activities, swimming, sports, arts & crafts, games, STEM activities, field trips, and summer adventures. We know how important it is to get kids back out to nature and interacting with their friends.  Weekly themes allow campers to practice leadership skills, critical thinking skills, be a part of a team, and develop lifelong friendships. In addition, campers gain an understanding of the YMCA's character development values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.

The Day Camps offered through the YMCA of Greater Dayton are certified through the American Camping Association and licensed through ODJFS.
