Sports Camps for Kids
YMCA Sports Camps focus on individual skill development as well as the team ideals of sportsmanship and camaraderie. These week-long sessions are designed to accommodate both playful and serious young sports fans. As campers grow and learn each activity, they can increase their skill level. We give them incentives to continue to achieve throughout their camp experience, gaining more advanced skills, and having a ball along the way. Though it’s stressed all week, we cover the importance of teamwork and perseverance through fun group games and ice breakers each Monday to kick off the camp week. Each Friday will end with tournament style competition and award ceremonies centered on the Y’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
