The Y is Giving Kids Their Best Summer Ever!

VOTED ONE-OF-THE-BEST SUMMER CAMPS & BEST OF AQUATICS WINNER 2018

The Randolph YMCA’s day camp offer a mix of fun and educational activities aimed at improving kids’ well-being. The Y’s program centers on three areas proven to impact kids’ development: friendship, accomplishment and belonging.

Nine weekly sessions begin June 24 with different camps for children from three years old to teens held in Randolph and Long Valley, with extended care available for many camps.

We, Me, You Summer Fun Club for children ages three to five is available with full and half day options. Gear up your preschooler for summer fun! Young campers will engage in hands-on learning, exploration, time with new friends and caring Y counselors lead arts, songs, games, gymnastics, science, cooking and outdoor activities for campers to enjoy. Your preschooler will make new friends in our safe & structured camp. Campers will swim 3x per week and attend local field trips, all included in your camp fees.

Camp Wide Horizons (1st-4th grade) is what summer should be! The fun & freedom of the outdoors while learning new skills and making great friends.Each week is filled with new activities to explore. Campers will participate in archery, karate, sports & games, arts & crafts, gymnastics, field trips, science, outdoor skills and swimming 3x per week.

Youth Adventure Camp (5th-9th grade) is designed to strengthen decision making skills, encourage social responsibility, and team work through challenging and fun character-building experiences like hiking. AWESOME weekly trips to Dorney Park, Camel Beach, Laser Tag, Dave & Busters, bowling, roller-skating and water parks. Free swim at the YMCA 2x per week.

High Schoolers in ninth and tenth grades can become part of the Counselor-in-training program, where they will learn to be camp counselors. Interviews with Lynn Molitoris, CIT Director, are required to enter this program.

“At the Y, we know that when kids are given an opportunity to accomplish new skills, make friends and feel like they belong, they are comfortable expressing individuality and feel more
confident, connected and supported,” says Bill Lamia, CEO of the Randolph YMCA. “We are focusing on these youth development areas to ensure that kids in our day camp program go home with so much excitement for all they’ve accomplished and enjoyed that they can’t wait to come back the next day.”
