Summer 2017 Weekly Themes

WEEK 1: OCEAN LIFE

Dive in for a week of under the sea exploration! Mermaids, shells, fish, whales and did we mention SHARKS abound as we explore life under the sea through nature and craft projects, group games, skits, and friendly competitions. Of course, no Ocean Life week would be complete without some wet, wild, and wacky water games as we’ll find plenty of ways to beat the summer heat!

WEEK 2: STARS & STRIPES

Celebrate the USA and Independence Day with the YMCA!  We will explore what makes our country unique through arts & crafts, songs, games, and more. The Y kids will get patriotic this week to show our appreciation for the Red, White & Blue!

WEEK 3: CONSTRUCTION KIDS

Kids love to make things and be creative. It’s how they learn about the world around them! They just need their imagination, some great materials, and a safe, encouraging environment. Our kids will work on projects of all kinds, where we see creativity come alive. And most of all, we will have a ton of fun!

WEEK 4: JUNGLE SAFARI

Lions and tigers and bears!  Oh My!  Come on a safari with us to the zoo and learn everything from animal calls to life at the zoo.  Learn about all different habitats and experience the vast smorgasbord of plant and animal life on our planet.

WEEK 5: SPACE STATION VACATION

3, 2, 1…Blast-off! Learn about the solar system through hands-on activities involving the planets, stars, and moon. Explore the fascinating world of science and technology through hands-on experiments, games, arts & crafts and more.

WEEK 6: BACKYARD BASH

Enjoy the great outdoors as we partake in summertime classic games like tug-of-war, kickball, foursquare, hopscotch, lawn games, nature crafts, picnics, recycling projects, s’mores, and a BBQ lunch to end the week!

WEEK 7: DECADES OF FUN

Travel back with us to days of the past! We will rewind time to the days of root beer floats, the wild west gold rush, and the days of disco! Explore caveman drawings on a dinosaur egg hunt; relive the hippie days, and more.

WEEK 8: GAME ON!

Let the games begin! Show us your Camp Spirit through team banners, goofy hats, crazy socks, minute to win it games, silly contests, wacky relays, sport challenges, and more. We will be putting a new twist on some of our favorite classic games and playing the originals.

CARING. HONESTY. RESPECT. RESPONSIBILITY.
