DAY CAMP

Few environments are as special as summer camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

ARE YOU READY?

WELCOME TO THE BEST SUMMER EVER!

Thank you for partnering with us to give your child the Best Summer Ever! We are excited to welcome you at all of our summer camps in the communities of Bellingham, Foxboro, Franklin, Mansfield, and North Attleboro. We provide a place for youth and teens to belong, try new things, and make lifelong friends. Your child will also find fulfillment through hands-on learning, and discover more about who they are and what they want to achieve during the summer and beyond.

Our days at camp will be invigorating! We will play, laugh, and learn through STEM, field games, arts and crafts, water games, swim lessons, archery, field trips, special guests, and specialties like theatre, dance, sports, ropes team building, and gymnastics. As trained staff role models, we pledge to reinforce confidence, healthy habits, and our Y’s core founding values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility every day through our words and actions. We will help your children learn and grow and we look forward to sharing amazing new adventures with you and your children this summer!

Register today for the Best Summer Ever!

Sincerely,
Your Hockomock Area YMCA Camp Staff
