Helping young people grow and feel a sense of belonging is important. Y camps provide safe, value-based programming led by caring staff who help kids have fun and memorable experiences. At our summer day camps, every day is an adventure, filled with fun and shared with friends.
At camp, kids discover new things each day as they build confidence through activities that encourage personal growth and development of strong values. Activities include: sports, games, friendships, team-building, creative arts, character challenges, and more.
Y camps are reliable, affordable, and convenient and a great place to make lifelong friends and memories.
Enrollment begins February 18 for Y members or February 23 for community participants
Summer camp at Camp Hyde is about getting away, experiencing the outdoors, and unplugging from your everyday routine.
