YMCA SUMMER CAMP 2017 IS HERE!

Summer Camp 16

There’s something about summer camp memories that stick with us forever. The friendships we make, the skills we learn, and the confidence we build last long after the summer ends. The Edwardsville YMCA is proud of its long summer camp tradition which continues in 2017! We will be building on our 50+ years of experience as an expert summer camp resource, committed to providing a high-quality, age-appropriate experience for your children with a wide range of activities and adventures to enjoy. On top of having lots of fun during the summer we hope to instill the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

The Edwardsville YMCA Summer Camps have provided thousands of children in our community with a camp experience they never forget. We offer a very active on-site day camp, held at the 116,000 square foot Meyer Center, for children from Kindergarten to fifth grade, a Teen Adventure Camp for sixth through eighth graders, and a variety of preschool camps at our Esic facility. We will be offering a wide range of activities that you have come to expect along with exciting new opportunities to enhance your summer camp experience. Each Friday has a special event or field trip and if that isn’t enough, we also offer over 75 specialty camps for everyone to enjoy!

Summer Camp is a passion of the YMCA and we hope your children become enriched over the summer to explore new areas where they can build a passion, uncover a hidden talent, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
