A Summer to Explore:
This summer, the YMCA of Austin will offer 21 camps across Travis, and Counties including Kinder, Theme, Sports, and Adventure camps. All camps will offer swimming, field trips, games, crafts, and character development activities. Camps will operate from 7:30 am - 6:00 pm at designated schools, churches, and YMCA facilities. Campers will enjoy changing weekly themes, sports, and adventures as well as weekly field trips and twice weekly trips to the pool. Activities are based on the YMCA of Austin's character values (Respect, Responsibility, Honest, Faith, and Caring) and the Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets.
Kinder Camp (ages 4-5):
Perfect for children who have not yet attended Kindergarten. Kinder Camp offers age-appropriate field trips, games, crafts, and books which emphasize a new theme each week. Campers will enjoy a field trip and two trips to the pool each camp week. This camp has a little more quiet time yet all the fund and activities of Theme Camp. Remember to bring a sleeping mat, blanket, and pillow daily for quiet time.
