Summer Camps at the Summit Area YMCA provide children ages 3 years to 16 years* with safe and exciting opportunities to explore, learn, create and discover the world around them. Under the guidance of caring, enthusiastic, trained staff members, children will create lasting friendships and lifelong memories, and find positive role models to look up to. Our goal is to ensure your child has the best possible summer camp experience ever!

With over 50 camp choices, the Summit Area YMCA offers a variety of camp choices designed to meet your child’s interests and passions every week of summer! Featuring your traditional favorites and a wide assortment of new specialty camps, we surely have something for everyone. From Ninja Warriors to Fashion Design and Farm Camp to Computer Programming. Our programs inspire campers to embrace the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility and challenge them to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually by gaining an appreciation for other perspectives, encouraging campers to become better friends, students and leaders and, of course, to have fun!

*In addition, we also offer Special Needs Camp. The Special Needs Programs at the Summit Area YMCA are thoughtfully designed for children/teens with communication, social, behavioral and learning differences to thrive in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. 

The Summit Area YMCA's summer camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), an independent body that establishes standards for key aspects of camp operation, program quality, health and safety of campers. As always, summer camp scholarships and financial assistance are available to those in need. We're gearing up for another great summer, and we look forward to you being a part of it too!
