Welcome to Summer Camps at the Y!

Summer camp at the YMCA of Snohomish County is so much more than a fun summer for all. At YMCA camp kids grow, build skills and gain self-confidence in a values-based environment. Our camps have much to offer kids from preschool to 11th grade. As always, the focus of our camps is to make a positive impact on your child: Relationships, Achievement, and Belonging are constant themes at camp.

Relationships

We inspire kids to work and play together, creating friendships that can last a lifetime.

Achievement

We provide kids with opportunities to try new experiences. Show them all they can do when they believe in themselves.

Belonging

We make kids feel welcome, feel comfortable being themselves, and know they’re a part of something great.

YMCA summer programs allow children to explore, challenge themselves, learn new skills, and make new friends. The Y helps kids build confidence, courage, and the drive to succeed. For many of us, fond childhood summer memories continue to fuel our imagination and remind us of a carefree and inspiring time.

Access to Y summer programs is critical in the wake of the pandemic, which kept many children isolated from friends and adult mentors. Many of our community’s families are working to recover from the economic challenges caused by the past year. We cannot let a family’s temporary financial constraints prevent children from accessing Y summer programs and services. Give today so that every child can experience the magic of summer at the Y.

CAMP INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

Special Needs

Y staff members are trained to help children with mild to moderate diverse–abilities. However, our facilities are not adequately staffed to work with children who need significant assistance with personal care, constant one–to–one support, or have great difficulty managing their behavior in a group setting. If your child requires specialized accommodations, please contact your local YMCA family branch.
