Find the right camp option for your kids!
We offer a wide variety of camp options across the Greater Philadelphia Y association where kids can learn new skills, stay active, meet new friends, and have a whole lot of fun!
There's truly something for everyone, with camps focused on sports, science, theater, and adventure we know your kids will be in for a great summer. We also are proud to host camps that are perfect for children with special needs who may need extra support, but still want to simply be a kid!
Local Summer Day Camp
Hosted at one of our local Y branches or a nearby offsite location, we know how to make summer a blast in the greater Philadelphia region. Your kids can enjoy traditional, specialty, or dragonfly day camps close to home. No matter which camp you choose, there will be tons of games, activities, and time for active play!

What do parents think?
We know camp at the Y is awesome, but don't just take our word for it. Check out some feedback parents shared about their child's experience at camp.
"My daughter always comes home excited about yet another adventure at the Y camp. One week she's off to the Aquarium. Another week she's taking a swing at the baseball stadium. Another week she's improving her swimming strokes. Never, never a dull moment at the YMCA summer camp. Thank you for giving my daughter memories she's going to cherish for a lifetime!"

"My kids love going to camp here. They always come home and tell me about the fun day they have. I know it's a safe environment for them and that makes me feel good know I can drop them off without worry. The counselors are awesome and always so friendly and kind at drop off and pick up. Thank you for another great summer!"

"Overall, Dragonfly Forest was exactly the experience we hoped for our son. He connected with peers and counselors, tried new things, gained new independence and understanding of others needs and challenges, and had fun. We felt he was in good hands, and that the staff had a great understanding of his needs."
