Summer is a time for kids to explore and expand the limits of their imagination. At Summit Area YMCA summer day camp, every day is a new adventure! We provide children ages 3 years to 16 years with safe and exciting opportunities to explore, learn, create and discover the world around them. We offer a variety of unique summer camp options designed to meet your child’s interests and passions every week of summer! Through our caring, enthusiastic and trained camp staff, children create lasting friendships and lifelong memories and find positive role models to look up to.

Creating an uplifting and supportive community has been a Y tradition from the beginning, and we don’t think anyone should be turned away because of financial constraints. As a nonprofit, the Summit Area YMCA is committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families in our community. We do so by offering financial assistance to those with demonstrated need so that they may enjoy all the Y has to offer, regardless of their ability to pay. This helps us ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Families with low or moderate household income or those who are experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to apply. Applicants must live or work in the Summit Area YMCA service area which includes Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit.
Providing a safe environment for your child is our priority. The Summit Area YMCA summer camps follow guidelines from the American Camp Association and New Jersey Department of Health, therefore program offerings may be subject to change based on their guidance.
