"If you somehow positively impact one child and they get a sense of self and confidence and even just happiness, and they bring that back to their family and their school, camp can affect millions of people."
A Y camp counselor
Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership-all amidst the fun of camp fires, bugle calls, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
The YMCA Summer Day Camp is a blast! Each week the Y offers a different theme with coordinating activities and events. The Y staff keeps the week action-packed with field trips, games and servicelearning opportunities that parents have come to expect from the Y.Location: Bristol Family YMCA
