Summer Day Camp 2017

The YMCA has a long history of providing a quality summer day camp experience for children and our own Camp Discovery is no exception. The Family Y's Camp Discovery is an exciting, 10 week day camp for children going into Kindergarten through 7th grade.

Camp Discovery runs Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM with extended care hours for those working parents from 6 AM to 6:30 PM.

Opening day is Monday, June 5th with camp ending on Friday, August 11th.

Camp Discovery provides many benefits, including opportunities for educational enrichment, social development, physical activity and exercise. At our camp, children make great memories that will last them a lifetime. The Camp Discovery Staff is committed to teaching and demonstrating the four core values of the YMCA: Honesty, Caring, Respect & Responsibility.

Camp begins each morning at Maher Park, which offers tennis and basketball courts, ball fields, a fishing pond, hiking trails, a shelter house and a playground. Lunch is provided for all campers and any child under the age of 18 in the community, through the Summer Food Service Program. In the afternoon, all campers swim. One of the biggest highlights of Camp Discovery is that it also includes a weekly field trip. Past trips included: The Columbus Zoo, COSI, and Heath Water Park, to name a few.

Camp Discovery accepts Title XX funds from the Department of Job & Family Services, and offers limited scholarships through the Y and United Way support.
