2021 Summer Camp

Get ready, get set - we’re looking forward to SUMMER FUN at the YMCA! With each themed week packed with games, enrichment activities, swimming, and more, we will have so much fun at this year’s Brooks YMCA summer camp!

  • Virginia licensed school-age summer camp

  • Ages: K (age 5 and up) - rising 6th grade. This is a school-age camp, so campers are grouped into age appropriate huddles.

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

Items to bring: water bottle, sunscreen, bathing suit, towel, lunch, and two snacks. Please label all items.
