Merrimack YMCA Camps

The best summer ever

Every kid should experience camp

Camp is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social, and educational activities.

The YMCA of Greater Nashua Day Camps put the teaching of our Core Values at the highest priority in our programs. Campers will have fun and be adventurous while being immersed in the values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.
