Summer Camp

**Summer camp for June 11-August 17 is full.** We are no longer accepting applications for the waitlist. If we receive any cancellations, we will contact the waitlist in the order the applications were received. Limited spots are available for August 20 and 21.

The Brooks Family YMCA offers a 10-week Virginia licensed school-age summer camp for kids ages 6-11. Come discover, explore, investigate and create with us at the Brooks Family YMCA! Each themed week will be packed with swimming, field trips, guest speakers, so we're sure to play our way through the BEST SUMMER EVER! We will go on 2-3 fieldtrips each week. Campers will experience a balance of spending time outside enjoying trails throughout McIntire Park, playing on the playground, and playing various games, as well as doing enrichment activities within the YMCA. This summer you can add swim lessons to any week of camp. All swim lesson sessions run Monday-Thursday for one week. So, regardless of which weeks of camp your child attends, you can always add on swim lessons!

Summer Camp registration opens on February 9th. Although there is no hard deadline to apply for financial assistance, we ask for a minimum of 5 business days for us to review financial assistance applications. Applications must be reviewed, in good order, and payment received before the child may attend camp.

Who Ages 6-11. This is a school-age camp so campers must be at least 6 years old. If you need camp for a younger child, please check out YMCA KinderCamp at Jefferson School
