Camp Safari Summer Day Camp


The YMCA has a long history of providing a quality summer day camp experience for children and our Camp Safari is no exception.  The Family Y’s Camp Safari is a 10 week day camp for children going into Kindergarten through 7th grade.  Camp Safari runs Monday through Friday from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM . This year Camp runs from June 8 through August 14.

Camp Safari 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 will be held at the YMCA daily, with sports and recreation time over at Miller Park on some days. Lunch is provided for all campers and any child under the age of 18 in the community, through the Summer Food Service Program, and in the afternoon, starting in July the groups will all have swim days assigned to splash and play in the pool.

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