There’s a YMCA Day Camp for EVERY Kid

Some kids love to spend their time competing against friends while playing a sport. Others like to discover, experiment and explore nature. Many are at their happiest when they're expressing themselves by creating. Every child is unique and finds fulfillment in different ways.

That's why the YMCA of Greater Charlotte offers specialty Summer Day Camp for kids in Charlotte and surrounding counties. Since some of the biggest social, physical and intellectual growth that kids experience happens during the summer, the Y has camps that build children's confidence through activities they love!
