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 3-12. 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!

Our Preschool camp will help ease the transition for our youngest campers from a preschool setting to summer day camp experience. The schedule creates daily consistency, allowing campers to experience all that a camp offers in a supportive and nurturing way. The campers will be bused to the YMCA two days per week for swimming in the YMCA Pool. Activities will include arts and crafts, sports, games, nature walks and explorations, friendship building, songs and so much more. The camp will utilize both the classroom and the outside areas throughout the day. There will be rest time after lunch for the campers who may need to rest.
This camp is located at Jonathan Daniels Preschool. This is the home of our school year preschool program. This site offers two classroom spaces, fenced in playground, tennis courts, baseball field, and walking trails.
