Summer Day Camp

The YMCA Super Summer Adventure Day Camp team is getting ready for the next Best Summer Ever!

We’re kicking off registration on February 24 with super savings. When you register your child at any First Coast YMCA branch that day and pay for at least two weeks of camp in full, you get an additional week free for that child.*

We’re proud to have been voted the BEST SUMMER CAMP in Jacksonville for 2017. And, here’s a hint about our plans for Summer 2018: imagination will get you everywhere! Campers will discover new adventures, interests, skills, build self-confidence, make new friends and feel a sense of achievement. Above all, we focus on nurturing the potential of every camper and making summer fun!

Our Impact in Summer 2017

A Typical Week of Camp Includes:

  • Camper’s Choice & Play during early morning and late afternoon hours
  • Skills building related to STEM, Art and Humanities, Sports and outdoor recreation play
  • Participates in Camp Readers Program
  • Start and end a camp day with a group assembly filled with song, dance and recognition to celebrate the spirit of camp
  • At least twice a week, campers participate in our Safety Around Water program which is designed to gain the basics skills of water safety in a group setting
  • Character development with a focus on our core values: Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility
  • A variety of either onsite special activities & guest speakers or off site field trips. *Vary per week, per camp site.

Member Savings
