Spring & Summer Breaks, Redefined
Camp in a Box brings the magic of camp to your home during spring and summer breaks.
Sure, spring and summer breaks look a little different this year, but that's no reason to stop exploring! During spring and summer breaks from elementary school, the Y's Camp in a Box brings the magic of camp to wherever you are. Each week, the box will be filled with the tools you need to explore the great nearby, including classic camp activities like arts and crafts and hands-on STEM projects (science, technology, engineering and math). Plus, campers will stay connected with each other and their counselor through twice daily interactive meetings.
Spring Break registration closes March 29. Summer Break registration opens March 20 at 6:00am and closes on the Monday prior to each week of camp.
Our Education & Curriculum Director has programmed Camp in a Box weeks with great activities, each around a fun and engaging theme!

Welcome to the world of adventure and the stories behind our favorite mythical figures. Campers will create their own adventures as well as dream up their own fantasy character.
