Part of the Greater Waterbury YMCA, YMCA Camp Oakasha provides quality day camping experiences that support youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. All programs are designed to teach the positive values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Children will have the opportunity to make new friends, have new adventures, and come away with a summer filled with Oakasha memories!
YMCA Camp Oakasha Staff are committed to the safety and fun of each child and work hard to give campers the best days of their lives! Campers will be actively involved with peers in a positive and meaningful way. Each one-week session has a different theme that guides the special programming for the week, adding variety and flexibility for each camper. Everyday campers will have the opportunity to swim in our pool and participate in a variety of activities including Archery, Boating, Climbing, Arts & Crafts, Nature, Sports, and a new camp favorite: Gaga Dodgeball! We also offer field trips every other session, to allow campers to experience adventures in Connecticut with their new friends and favorite staff members!
YMCA Camp Oakasha is for families! We will have three family nights this summer that offer families the opportunity to take part in all of the camp fun that their children get every day. All families from the summer are welcome to attend at no additional cost!
Be a part of YMCA Camp Oakasha: a traditional day camp experience with staff who care deeply about your children!
