Summer Day Camp at the YMCA of Youngstown

When school is out for the summer, the YMCA has all the activities you’ll need to keep your child engaged, entertained, and combat summer learning loss while you work or go about your duties. Summer Day Camps and Off School days offer swimming, crafts, gym games, speakers, and much more!

Day camp at the Y is led by experienced staff and offers nearly all the benefits of overnight camp – new outdoor experiences, skill-building and lasting friendships – in rural, urban and suburban settings, while allowing campers to return home each afternoon. We believe that the camp experience is transformational. YMCA camp gives kids the chance to make new friends, learn new skills and interact with nature. Our Summer Day Camp programs offer swim lessons, cooking classes, physical activities, arts and humanities, field trips, summer learning loss prevention, reading and writing help, and so much more!
