Camp: More Than Summer Fun

FFD Camp Picture1Summer 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 Camp Badakookala and Discovery please review our 2016 Camp Brochure or call our camp guru Ryan Leworthy 203 255 2834. Brochure: Summer Camp Brochure 2016

To register, please fill out the documents and bring them to the Y!  Many weeks fill to capacity fast! Camp Registration Packet 2016

For day-to-day program details, please review our 2016 Parent Handbook: Summer Camp Parent Handbook 2016

If your child is 14-15 years of age, they may be interested in our Counselor in Training program. In our CIT program, they will receive valuable job interviewing skills, child care training, leadership experience, teambuilding and problem solving skills.  To apply please fill out the application and contact the Y for an interview.  2016 CCC YMCA CIT Application
