S.T.E.M. Learning Camp (July 3-7)
Does your little genius ask you tough questions? Wonder about the actual science that’s powering a cool experiment? Look at a bridge and ponder how it was constructed? Let them join the next generation of leaders using hands-on projects to explore the fascinating world of science and discovery. STEM activities focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

The Great Outdoors (July 10-14)
Remember the days of mud pies and rock collecting? We’re bringing them back. Your adventurer will get in touch with nature and learn the importance of keeping the community green while becoming re-connected to the treasures in our own backyard! This eco-friendly program will explore nature trails, helping wildlife and getting active—all while gaining an appreciation for the beautiful world around us through strong mentorship.

Build it! (Featuring Bricks4Kidz!) (July 17-21)
The sky’s the limit when it comes to a great idea! The Bricks4Kidz crew will show your little inventor how to build motorized LEGO projects. The YMCA staff will also challenge your child to create other innovative projects by collaborating, experimenting, playing, constructing and deconstructing!

Get Messy (July 24-28)
Let your child paint with their toes, participate in a crazy Jell-O relay, make massive bubbles and more without worrying about the resulting mess! Each day we’ll get messy in the outdoors with a variety of zany challenges, wacky group games and unique artistic creation.

In a Galaxy Far, Far Away… (July 31-August 4)
Calling all Padawans! We’re off to a galaxy far, far away to explore the ever-expanding Star Wars universe through arts, crafts, games and other activities that are sure to enthrall fans of all ages. We’ll help your child build their very own lightsaber, craft a droid and play some Death Star dodgeball! We hope you can join us on this journey and may the force be with you.

ART-rageous (August 8-11)
Give your child the opportunity to express themselves as they explore all types of artistic mediums. Our trained instructors will lead your child in painting, sculpture and more to create beautiful masterpieces you’ll be excited to show off. Who knows, maybe your child is the very next Picasso just waiting to be discovered!

Wonka-fied (August 14-18)
Holy Snozzberries! You found the Golden Ticket! Lead your child into the world of Wonka to create a unique Wonka Bar, investigate bubble gum science, concoct a fizzy lifting drink, transform into an Oompa Loompa or become their favorite Wonka character!

Marvel-ous (August 21-25)
