OUR PROMISE TO PARENTS - Your kids will be safe, make new friends, learn new skills and most of all, have fun! 

Join the Oahe Family YMCA from May 25-August 12, 2022 for a fun-filled summer for your child! Whether you choose one week or all summer, YMCA Day Camp fits your schedule and provides fun and enriching activities for your child.

Day Camp provides an exciting setting for your children to explore the outdoors. Quality staff will guide them through a summer of discovery as they explore the world around them. Weekly themes allow campers to learn more about the world's ecosystems through art, sporting, nature and character development activities.

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.
