Both day camp and overnight camp are in full swing at the YMCA! Thousands of kids have already experienced the fun, adventure and excitement that Y camp offers.
Currently, our day camp programs have welcomed 5,733 children, and resident camp has hosted 1,072 campers. Some of these kids return to Y camps week after week throughout the summer.
All Y camps provide kids and teens a safe environment to build confidence, character and leadership skills while engaging in summer adventure and building friendships that will last a lifetime.
The Y offers 26 day camp sites across metro Atlanta and two waterfront resident camps in North Georgia. Camp programs serve a wide variety of interests, from sports-focused camps to circus camp, to STEAM programs, and arts and crafts. There is a Y camp program to help every child learn, grow and be creative!
By summer’s end, Y camps will serve more than 15,000 young people! Thanks to the WHY IT MATTERS Annual Giving Campaign, more than $1 million in camper scholarships have already been awarded! That means more than 3,000 children will have opportunities to experience all the fun and excitement of Y camps thanks to the generosity of our donors.
