Kids discover adventure at every turn this summer! 

YMCA Summer Camp registration is now open.

At our 2024 eXploration Camp in Charlottesville, VA, young campers embark on a journey of learning and fun. Each week brings a new theme, sparking creativity through arts and crafts, engaging their curiosity with STEM projects, and promoting physical health with exciting PE games. Swimming sessions twice a week ensure campers stay cool and confident in the water. Field trips add an extra layer of adventure, and themed dress-up days make learning immersive and exciting.

  • Ages: 5-9. This is a school-age camp, so campers are grouped into age-appropriate huddles.

  • Location: Burley Middle School (Weeks 1-6) & Brooks Family YMCA (Weeks 7 & 8)

  • Virginia licensed summer camp



Space is limited and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
