The YMCA of Delaware offers indoor, outdoor, and overnight camp options for children of all ages (Pre-k – 10th grade). YMCA campers make life-long memories, learn how to create new friendships, and explore the natural world around them when they participate in our outdoor camps. Our camp activities like art, STEM, music, literacy, nature, swimming, and sports are designed to build confidence, develop skills, and discover new talents. Weekly themes, on-site and off-site field trips, and special events make it a different adventure every week.

We are excited to provide a fun-filled summer for all our campers! Below are just some of the activities your child will experience while attending a YMCA of Delaware Day Camp:

  • Summer Camp Activities- Weekly camp activities include arts and crafts, nature and STEM, drama, field games, sports and movement, water play, and theme-related activities. Language arts and math opportunities will be incorporated into activities to support students academically during the summer months. Please see your specific Branch camp page for more information regarding weekly themes and events.
  • Pool Time!– Children will have the opportunity to swim with their assigned group at various times during the week. Water safety and an opportunity to increase swim skills are incorporated into the fun.
  • Extensive Staff Training–All Y staff members receive training annually in child abuse prevention, first aid, CPR and workplace safety. Our number one priority is the health and well-being of our campers, staff and community.
  • Camper Orientation– All campers will participate in an orientation that covers personal space, appropriate behaviors and expectations while at camp, and other best practices to protect their own health and safety as well as the safety of others.
  • Enhanced Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures– Parents and guardians will remain in their cars during drop-off and pick-up. After check in, a camp staff member will accompany each child to their pre-determined group.
  • Health Protocols– Anyone exhibiting signs of illness will not be permitted to attend Camp. For the safety of all participants, please remain at home if you are sick.


Note:  When enrolling your child in camp, please select the camp group that aligns with the grade your child will have COMPLETED by June.
