Summer Day Camp

For parents with hectic schedules and kids that aren't quite ready for overnight camp, YMCA Day Camp is a great alternative. From arts and crafts to swimming to basketball to drama to nature adventures, our Day Camp provides a fun, safe and dynamic environment for kids to experience the best summers of their lifetimes. Activities are designed to be enjoyed by kids of all ages and are supervised by caring, trained Camp Counselors.

Camp Hours:
You may drop your child off at the Y as early as 7:00 a.m. & pick him/her up by 6:00 p.m. Our camp activity day runs 8:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Free Breakfast, Lunch and Snacks:
This summer we will be offering free breakfast, lunches and snacks. Mindful of rising costs of gas, food, etc. we've teamed up with Ozark Food Harvest to offer nutritious snacks and lunches.


Y Member: $100/ week first child
$75/ week additional children
$25/ day per child ($15 additional)
Non-Member: $140/ week first child
$100/ week additional children
$35/ day per child ($25 additional)

Register early, as some weeks fill up quickly. To register, we ask that you complete the registration packet prior to your child attending camp. You can download the Day Camp Parent Packet by clicking on the PDF file or you may pick one up at our Front Desk at 2600 S. Grand in Carthage.
