Learn About YMCA Day Camp

Campers are assigned to Units by grade level they will be entering. Mutual buddy requests, within grade level, from campers are honored whenever possible. If two campers are not in the same unit; the older camper will always be placed with the younger camper’s group. Campers are not able to request specific counselors.

Impacting Kids’ Development

The YMCA of Greater Williamson County’s day camp offers a mix of fun and educational activities aimed at improving kids’ wellbeing. Our program centers on three areas proven to impact kids’ development: friendship, accomplishment and belonging.

Friendship

We’re here to inspire kids to work together and play together, creating friendships that can last a lifetime.

Accomplishment

We are here to surround your kids with fantastic chances to try new experiences. Show them all they can do when they believe in themselves.

Belonging

We’re here to make kids feel welcome. To help them quickly realize this is a place where they belong and can be themselves. To try new things. To make new friends. And be a part of something great.

 

Trained Staff

Our caring counselors are professional role models.

Swimming

Kids cool off in the pool under the watch of certified lifeguards.

Healthy Kids Focus

Dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children.

Financial Assistance Available

We believe every child should have the opportunity to experience camp.

Extended Care Available

After hours to accommodate working parents.

 

Campers will have the option to purchase snacks, drinks, and souvenirs at our Trading Post during each camp session. Parents are encouraged to set up an account at the YMCA by depositing no more than $20.00 per week. The Trading Post works on account or cash. We prefer accounts to avoid the chance of lost or stolen money.

Express Check-In is from 7:00am-9:00am. To utilize the express check-in, all arriving campers will enter at the YMCA main parking lot.
As you enter the Y parking lot you will see signs directing you to your camper’s unit. A camp staff member will greet you, ask for your PIN NUMBER and direct you to the unit your camper is attending.
Please follow the signs until you come to the appropriate location where you will be greeted by a unit staff member to drop off your camper. After dropping off your camper, you will continue through the camp facility, exiting at the south end of the camp. During the summer months, the camp road through the park is a one way street.
Cars will not be allowed to turn around to drive back north through the park towards the Y facility. This is specifically for camper safety. We have overnight campers moving through camp at this time as well. Parents must remain in their vehicles while using the express system so that traffic keeps moving.


Express Check-out is from 4:15pm-6:30pm. To utilize the express check-out, you will follow the same procedures previously used during the express check-in.
Only persons who have a Camper Check-out Card and a PIN NUMBER will be able to check-out a camper.
All authorized individuals must be at least 18 years of age.
