Summer Day Camp


Our goal is to provide a safe, stimulating, and fun environment for children in grades K-8th. We incorporate the basic Christian values: Honesty, Responsibility, Respect and Caring into our activities. Through activities like field trips, songs, large and small group games, summer reading, and devotions, our program is designed to enhance your child’s day.


YMCA of Upper Palmetto is committed to providing the highest quality care possible. We are excited about the unique opportunities provided by our program. We strive to develop the whole child through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. At the YMCA, we want our children to learn, grow and thrive!

We are committed to a thorough recruitment process, which includes comprehensive training and background checks. Your camper is in good hands!
