Summer Camp

Welcome to summer at the Keene Family YMCA! Whether you’re considering a traditional day camp or a specialty camp, summer at the Y is always filled with excitement, adventure, new friends, lifelong memories, and most of all fun! Our camp programs are based on the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, delivered in a safe and supportive environment where safety is our top priority. We provide affordable, quality summer experiences for youth ages 4-12. There are few experiences as unique and special as camp. At camp, children become part of a community and form friendships as they learn how to be more independent and contribute to a group. Amidst all the fun of sports, crafts, outdoor adventures, and more, children develop skills that build character and promote leadership. At the Y, we believe every child should be given the opportunity to experience the joy of summer camp. Don’t miss out!
