Brooks YMCA Summer Camp 

Come discover, explore, investigate, and create with us at the Y!  

With each themed week packed with enrichment activities, swimming, field trips, guest speakers, and more, we will play our way through the Best Summer Ever.

  • 10-week Virginia licensed school-age summer camp
  • Ages: Rising 1st - rising 5th grade. This is a school-age camp, so campers are grouped into age appropriate huddles.
  • Ratio is 1:15 counselor to camper. 
  • Campers go on one (1) fieldtrip each week.

Campers will experience a balance of spending time outside enjoying trails throughout McIntire Park, swimming daily, playing on the playground, playing games, and doing enrichment activities within the YMCA.
