Summer Day Camp

Summer Day Camp 2019

Our Summer Day Camp provides a safe and enriching environment for campers to participate in healthy, developmentally appropriate activities and learning experiences. Our camps focus on having fun while learning, building self-esteem and developing social skills through new activities.

Each day is designed with individual and group activities, free and structured play time, organized activities and snack time. The staff observes and interacts with children maintaining an environment that is stimulating and meeting the needs of each child. Challenging activities are provided in small and large group settings under the guidance of caring, well-trained staff and children are given an experience that lasts a lifetime! Ultimately, in keeping with the purpose and mission of the Y, we strive to help children develop fully in spirit, mind, and body.


Some daily activities include:

  • Physical Games
  • Special Events
  • Playground Recreation Use
  • Free choice of activity
  • Snack Time
  • Peer Socialization

 Financial Assistance

Our goal is to ensure that no one is denied services due to inability to pay. Therefore, we offer options for financial assistance to those who qualify. One option for financial assistance is provided by the Community Child Care Connections (CCCC) program. Upon approval, your family will be assigned a monthly co-pay to be paid to the YMCA. Applications for the CCCC are available at the Christian County YMCA. If your family does not qualify for the CCCC, they can apply for scholarship through the Christian County YMCA. Scholarships are determined on a sliding fee scale. Scholarship dollars are provided by generous donors contributing to our Annual Strong Kids Campaign. If you are interested in helping the YMCA fulfill its mission by supporting our Strong Kids Campaign, please contact the YMCA at (217) 287-7271 for more information.
