Fun, Friends & Teamwork

Join the Typhoons Swim Team

The Hamden/North Haven YMCA Typhoons are back and better than ever! Newly-affiliated with USA Swimming®, the Typhoons will be lead by Coach Kevin Brown, who brings over 19 years of aquatics and competitive swimming experience along with a strong work ethic and passion for the sport. Coach Brown believes in teaching life lessons of sport and sportsmanship through swimming, not simply training swimmers.

YMCA competitive swimming is a natural progression from swim lessons, where children and teens continue their love of swimming in an ideal environment for cognitive, physical, and social development. Typhoon coaches emphasize detailed stroke development, time achievement and an emphasis on teamwork, hard work and fun.

The Best Summer Ever!

Summer Day Camp

Summer is an ideal time for children to get out and explore.  A chance to enjoy recreational and educational activities that help them learn, grow and thrive. Do you remember your best summer ever? Was your best summer a combination of exploration, activity, education, friends and fun? For families looking to keep their children’s minds and bodies active, the Y can  give them an adventurous, active and healthy summer.

Camp Mountain Laurel is located on 2705 Downes Road in Hamden 203-764-1103 . Twenty acres of wooded space with an open shelter, outdoor swimming pool, archery station, gaga pit, ropes course and climbing wall. Dirt paths lead you easily to our Main Building where we have arts & crafts, a summer library for reading, bathrooms, changing rooms and the first aid office.  In the morning you can hear the birds chirping and children laughing throughout the camp as the sun begins to peak through the leaves – and you’ll see the tallest trees ever amongst our new larger than life backyard game stations.  Come explore nature’s outdoor classroom with us.

We offer a breadth of activities for campers ranging from 3-15 years old.  No one sits still at Camp Mountain Laurel! A standard week at camp includes swim lessons followed by recreational swim, archery, weekly STEM activities, hiking, a game of foursquare, soccer or flag football; arts & crafts; quiet reading time, with a little down time to just hanging out with friends.
