welcome to ymca summer camPThrough programs like YMCA Day and Sleepaway Camp, we nurture your childs sense of self-confidence and introduce them to positive, fun experiences that build leadership and social skills. Well-trained, qualified staff serve as positive role models for campers. Y Day Camp enhances campers self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills through structured (and fun!) activities. Campers develop a true understanding of diversity in an atmosphere of acceptance and approval of the uniqueness of others. Campers are encouraged to be creative, expressive and learn new skills. Summer learning activities offer fun way for campers to read and learn over the summer months. All YMCA Day Camps are licensed by the NYC Department of Health and Accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA).
YMCA Summer Camp helps campers ages 4 -12 years old and teens ages 13-17 years old grow mentally and physically by participating in challenging activities in both small and large group settings under the supervision of a caring and well trained staff.
SUMMER LEARNINGTo succeed in school and life, children and young adults need ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential skills. This is especially true during the summer months when children lose much of what they learn during the school year.
YMCA of Greater New York Day Camps provide high-quality summer learning initiatives that give children a variety of ways to improve reading and math skills and explore music, drama, art and sports. Through fun, themed curriculum that incorporates key academic components, children will practice and further their academic skills, learn to plan and create projects, learn teamwork and develop new skills. To inspire reading, our program will provide books recommended by the Department of Education for summer reading.
OUR CAMP LOCATIONSThe McBurney YMCA Summer Day Camp operates out of PS 41 located at 116 West 11th Street, New York, NY 10011. We also use the pool and gym at the McBurney Y for swimming and sports.
Our Summer Sleepaway Camp is for boys and girls ages 6-16 from all over the world and is located 86 miles from NYC in Huguenot, NY. There are two villages, McAlister (Ages 6-12) and Talcott (12-15), that are located on our 1,150 acre property.
