Half-Day Activities & Exploration Camp
Registration NOW OPEN for 2024 Mini Camp! Register now until December 31, 2023 to receive an early bird discount (2023 rates!) New rates will apply starting January 1, 2024.
Kiddos ages 3 - 5 will learn new skills, gain independence, explore their interests, and just have fun. Our Mini Camps are packed with activities that will keep minds sharp and little bodies moving! Kids will have a BLAST with outdoor games, sports activities, art projects, and more during each themed week! Each week the kids will work to prepare a sing-a-long program to perform for their families on Thursdays at 12:45pm! Children must be fully potty trained and able to use the bathroom on their own to attend!

Mini Camp Refund Policy
Mini Camp Credit/Refund Policy There is a $25 non-refundable/non-transferrable fee for all Mini Camp sessions unless cancelled by the YMCA. If you apply one week prior to the first day of camp, then a full credit/refund, less $25 non-refundable/non-transferrable fee will be given. Once camp begins, no credit/refund will be given. There will be no credits/refunds for days missed due to weather-related cancellations, illness, other activities, etc. You will need to fill out a refund/credit form, which can also be found at either Member Services Desk. The form will be reviewed by the department, and you will be informed of the action taken.
