YMCA Summer Day Camp 2013
Join the Lima Family YMCA this June through August for a fun filled summer for your child! Lima YMCA Day Camp provides an exciting setting for your children to learn and have fun. We have a summer of fun filled activities planned such as science, park visits, swimming, arts & crafts, games, nature walks, field trips, music, sports clinics. Quality staff will guide kids through a summer of discovery as they explore the world around them.
All activities are designed to be fun and stimulating. Campers work together in many activities which lead to the development of teamwork skills, leadership skills and lifelong friendships. In addition, campers gain an understanding of the YMCA's character development values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
YMCA Day Camp is a full day of activities for children ages 6-12. Camp will run Monday - Friday for 11 weeks of the summer, June through August. Trips are included in the theme weeks and students will travel by bus or by walking. A full program brochure and Day Camp registration forms are available at the YMCA front desk.
