YMCA Summer Day Camp is Back in Action for 2016

YMCA_SUMMER_DAY_CAMP_IS_BACK_IN_ACTION21-1Sign your kids up now so they can join the fun too! The Duneland Y kicked off its summer day camp program, Camp Shorwau, on Monday June 6th. The camp has already started to engage the children in learning opportunities, sports and confidence-building to ensure that this is the best summer of their lives! Camp Shorwau offers children a way to make lasting friendships, gain confidence and try new experiences all within the safe comforting environment of the Duneland Family YMCA. Campers go on fieldtrips such as Lakeland Park, Medieval Times, Silver Beach, Potawatomi Zoo and more! The children also participate in activities such as gardening, cooking, acting, reading as well as sports so that they can have fun and learn new skills!

The Y’s summer camp will help the children grow to become more confident and help them build friendships and find passions that can last a lifetime! They will have the opportunity to work on STEM projects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), swim, and perform in a talent show all underneath the nurturing and inclusive Y environment!

Whether your child joins for a week or for the whole summer, it is an experience you don’t want them to miss. “Camp Shorwau is off to a wonderful start! We are excited to provide a safe community for all campers to explore the outdoors, develop new skills and make lasting friendships and memories. We would love for your children to join us as we help them grow as individuals and leaders here at Y Summer Camp” said Camp Coordinator Sally Gabric.

The Y is the place for your children to spend the summer and it is not too late to enroll. The Y is always looking for more children to guide and teach in Camp Shorwau. Day Camp hours are 9am to 4pm. Extended care is available from 6-9am and 4-6pm. Weekly cost is $110 for all campers. Financial assistance is available.
