The Best Summer Ever!
All of our camps share a common mission: to encourage character growth through caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Regardless of which camp you choose, you can rest assured that our camp staff is committed to developing these traits through a variety of camp activities. When you choose Door County YMCA camp, you are investing in a safe, fun and memorable experience for your child.
The Y is giving kids their best summer ever through a day camp experience with more activities to help them learn and master skills, make friends and feel welcome.
Through the Y’s day camp program, kids participate in fun and educational activities that will help them:
• Learn and master skills that help them realize their passions, talents and potential;
• Build relationships with new friends and staff role models adding to their well being;
• Develop a sense of belonging, so they feel safe, welcome and free to express their individuality.
We take our child's safety seriously. Our counselors, camp staff and lifeguards complete over 30 hours of pre-camp training including CPR, First Aid, AED and Child Abuse Prevention. We conduct background checks and drug screenings on all camp staff and employees. Our counselors also learn child development best practices, as well as techniques to encourage all campers to be inclusive and celebrate our differences.
Tradition and Values
The YMCA invented “day camp” to bring enriching experiences to children in local communities. With more then 20 camping seasons to build on, this year is sure to be the best summer ever! The focus on summer camp will be fostering of friendships, accomplishments and belonging through age appropriate enrichment activities in indoor and outdoor settings, keeping kids active, engaged and having fun!
Support of Family
We strive to offer camp options that fit every family’s busy summer calendars. With full summer, weekly and daily rates, we are sure to be able to provide support for the full-time working parent, or those just looking to incorporate some fun into their child’s summer!
At the Y, you’re not just a member of a facility; you’re part of a cause with a shared commitment to nurture the potential of you, improve health and well-being, give back and support our neighbors. YMCA members enjoy special pricing on programs and receive priority registration.
