Summer Happens Here!
KIDS WILL EXPERIENCE SUMMER CAMP LIKE NEVER BEFORE!
The AMA YMCA Has An Entire New Summer Camp Program!
Our summer camp experience is as unique as your child. You can create a customized experience for your child to give them a summer they won’t forget! Choose from over 40 camp offerings weekly based on their age and interests. Our licensed and background checked staff possess extraordinary skills in working with children and have a passion for guiding each child’s development. They are committed to
helping children and teens make new friends, have fun, and find a sense of belonging at camp.
Our goal is to introduce children to as many new experiences as possible and help each child feel confident and secure in a fun and safe camp environment. YMCA camps challenge children to grow their imagination and creativity while making new friends and developing
self-directed initiatives and leadership skills.
We offer camp from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM with the option of extended care at FOUR locations in the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA. We also provide breakfast and lunch daily! Feel free to bring your own peanut-free lunch and snacks.
