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.
- Camp Create
Campers can indulge in their creative side through various specialty camps that focus on arts, dance, drama, gymnastics, and more. Activities include songs, crafts, projects, gym time among others. A few specialty camps offered are Acting 101, Brix-ology, Cooking Kids, Dance Camps, Musical Theater, Painting, Theater Improv and more.
All staff are hired based on prior experience working with school-age children and proven ability to lead in a group in a safe and fun environment.
- Preschool Summer Program
3 Year Olds – Kindergarten
A fun-filled, recreational camp based in the Merrimack Y Child Care Center. Each week centers on a unique theme, with a special event to wrap-up the week every Friday. Activities include songs, stories, dramatic play, building, creative projects, cooking, and splashing around in the sprinklers or wading pool. Children will also enjoy swim time in the Y pool once a week.
Professional staff and low teacher/child ratios assure a safe and fun time for your preschooler. It’s a perfect way to introduce your child to a preschool setting or to help your child make new friends and socialize with peers. Half-day and full-day options are available.
