No one does summer like the YMCA! Thank you for choosing to be a part of the YMCA of Douglas County Summer Day Camp Program. At the end of the summer, families want to hear their child had “the best summer ever.” To help make that happen, YMCA of Douglas County is offering Day camp, keeping kids in Douglas County safe, adventurous, active, engaged and healthy all summer long. YMCA camp programs offer youth fun and unique experiences with an opportunity to explore the outdoors, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime.


What is Summer Day Camp at the YMCA?

Summer Day Camp or S.D.C. is a 9am-3pm daily day camp for youth ages 5 to 11 years old. Those in summer day camp will spend their time making art and crafts, exploring the great outdoors, participating in physical activity, and making lasting memories with their camp friends and counselors.

What will Summer Day Camp cost and why?

Since child care is an extreme need  in Douglas County, we wanted to offer our camp program as a month-long session from June 13th through July 8th. This way parents/guardians know that they will have childcare Monday through Friday 9am-3:00pm with the possibility of signing up for early AM or late PM care. This model also helps the YMCA prepare for staffing needs, cost of supplies, and many other decisions as we try to bounce back from the pandemic.
