DAY CAMP AND EXTREME CAMP

Give your child the best summer ever at Y Day Camp or Extreme Camp, where we help kids to learn, grow, and build friendships all summer long. New this year are free healthy lunches for all campers, provided by a WalMart Food Program Grant. American Grille will be preparing the healthy lunches. Camp also meets HEPA (Healthy Eating and Physical Activity) standards for meals, snacks and physical activities. Twelve different theme camps will be offered throughout the summer. From experimenting with flight, to water fun, to learning about other science, the summer will hold a wide variety of activities each week. Activities include:

  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities like building rockets and making ice cream
  • New SPARK and CATCH physical fitness curriculums with new games, obstacle courses, and relays
  • Gardening with Master Gardeners
  • Tumbling
  • Swimming
  • Arts and crafts
  • Weekly field trips to places like Dickson Mounds, Peoria Zoo, Wildlife Prairie Park, and a Chiefs' Game

Day Camp is for kids going into Kindergarten-4th grade, and Extreme Camp is for youth going into 5th-7th grade. Canton Camp is led by Tracy Ford, along with a camp counselor for each age group. Canton Camp begins May 22 this year, and ends August 15. Farmington Camp is led by Ramona Lacey and camp counselors. Farmington Camp begins May 24 and ends August 15. Attend one week or the whole summer! Financial assistance is available through Y scholarships and Child Care Connection.
