Camp: More Than Summer Fun

Cover Image Rounded CornersSummer Day Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character, making friends and having fun.  But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

Camp teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of songs, games, arts & crafts, and meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.  The Y offers experiences for youth entering Pre K through ninth grade with a Counselor in Training program for 14-15 year olds.

To learn more about Bridgeport Y Summer Camp please review our 2016 Camp Brochure or call our camp guru at 203 334 5551.  Brochure: 2016 Summer Camp Brochure

The Y. For a better us.

Where do kids go when there’s nowhere to go? What do they do when there’s nothing to do? Kids will be kids, and idle hands will get to work one way or another. But if we give kids a place to go where they can be safe, where they can be curious, where they can be kids, then they’re capable of amazing things. The Y is that place. Watch:

Idle Hands with Arrow


Prevention. Lifestyle. Support.
