No one day of camp will be the same all summer at the Y!  Every week will have different field trips, highlights and the best part is four out of five days at camp are spent getting out to the park! We will be exploring everything from the mountains to the sound! Need more reasons to have your teen/tween join camp, here is four main reasons:

1. Staying Active: Keeping your tween/teen active this Summer! They get the freedom to explore the city and gain new experiences while supervised by our experience staff!

2. Strengthening Friendships: Strengthening and developing new friendships while exploring activities such as ropes courses, wilderness skills, playing interactive games and explore all the beaches around the city!

3. Community Service: Keep your tween/teen active in the community helping with service projects and learning about the community they live in.  

4. Something for Everyone: During any given week there are things to do for everyone, sports, games, literacy time, team building and social time with friends.
