Day Camp Program

At the YMCA of GWC, we offer a wide array of camps to meet every child’s needs throughout the summer months.

From Outdoor Adventure to Excursion, Specialty and Kinder – we have it all! And each of our camps is designed to make summer fun, exciting, convenient and safe while focusing on the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.

Day Camps:

Trading stories and sharing a favorite book or song with a new friend. Being greeted with smiles and high-fives from staff and team-mates after scoring the winning point. Always fitting in, just for being you. This is what the YMCA’s day camp is all about, and we are ensuring kids get more out of summer: more learning, more exploration and more achievement.

Pre-school age Camps:

These are filled with exciting activities, including arts and crafts, and group games. Campers can look forward to not only having loads of fun with us during their break from school, but also spending time with all of their friends in a safe and nurturing environment. Swim lessons are also available!

Holiday Camp:

Campers can look forward to not only having loads of fun with us during their holiday break from school, but also spending time with all of their friends in a safe and nurturing environment. Campers can expect to have a blast with use of our Indoor Roller Rink, Climbing Tower and Indoor Swimming Pool!

Specialty Camps:

These include various areas of interest for all ages. Some of our most popular options include babysitting, cooking, arts and crafts, Legos and excursion camps. We strive to help children 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.

Sports Camps:

Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Dance Gymnastics, Roller Hockey, and more! If your children are interested in sports, we have the perfect camps for them. The goal of these camps is to work on the fundamentals of each sports, team building skills, and having fun!

Teen Camps:

The YMCA of GWC offers a variety of options for teens that include exciting indoor and outdoor activities as well as field trips, arts and crafts, swimming and so much more await. Check out the YMCA Camp Twin Lakes Overnight Camps!

Overnight Camps:

Rising with the sun instead of sleeping until noon. Physical activity that encompasses the whole body — not just the thumbs. Stretching comfort zones and building confidence in ways a trip to the mall never could. The shared warmth of new friendships rather than the isolation of days spent online. At Camp Twin Lakes, we give campers the chance to reconnect with the simple joys of being a kid. Swimming, hiking, slip-and-sliding.
