SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE SUMMER CAMPS

YMCA Spirit and Adventure Camps provide youth with supervised activities that teach core values, conflict resolution and leadership skills. Campers will gain self-confidence, learn positive choice making skills, explore new things and gain lasting friendships in a supervised and fun setting. Day camp activities allow kids to create arts and crafts, do group games, enjoy storytelling, songs, explore science, swim, participate in field trips, and play a variety of games and sports. Each camp will offer activities that are suited specifically to the age-group.
