Teen Specialty Camps

Summer camps aren’t just for younger kids! The YMCA offers fun and challenging camp activities specifically tailored to preteens and teens. Teens will have fun as they learn, grow and thrive under the guidance of caring, well-trained staff members.


Babysitting Certification
Is your teen ready for more responsibility? If so, Babysitting Certification is a great way to gain fundamental skills. In this workshop, your teen will get hands-on experience working with children and get certified in CPR and First Aid. By the end of the week, each camper will go home with a babysitting booklet filled with reminders, tips, tricks, games, and activities.

Ages 10-16 | $199 members/$239 non-members

Digital Photography
Take a shot at this camp, which is sure to be a blast for anyone interested in media arts. Campers will learn about freelance photography and develop important digital photography skills, including how to be savvy and safe on social media. Then, our young photographers will put those skills into practice by traveling to local hot spots to snap the perfect photo. They will have the opportunity to create their own online portfolios. Teens are asked to bring a camera or a phone with a camera.

Traveling daily, your sharpshooter will crawl, roll and dart through fields and obstacles for a fun-filled experience. Goggles, guns, protective headgear, and paintballs are all provided, but campers are welcome to bring their own equipment as well.

PLEASE NOTE: Although all paintball guns are checked by the referees and set for safety at a velocity of 250 feet per second
or less, some hits may still cause bruising.
