Welcome to Summer Camps at the Y!
Summer camp at the YMCA of Snohomish County is so much more that a fun summer for all. At YMCA camp kids grow, build skills and gain self-confidence in a values-based environment. Our camps have much to offer kids from preschool to 11th grade. As always, the focus of our camps is to make a positive impact on your child: Relationships, Achievement, and Belonging are constant themes at camp.
We inspire kids to work and play together, creating friendships that can last a lifetime.
We provide kids with opportunities to try new experiences. Show them all they can do when they believe in themselves.
We make kids feel welcome, feel comfortable being themselves, and know they’re a part of something great.
Support A Camper
YMCA summer programs provide children with opportunities to explore, challenge themselves, learn new skills and make new friends. The Y helps kids build confidence, courage and the drive to succeed. For many of us, fond childhood summer memories continue to fuel our imagination and remind us of a time that was carefree and inspiring.
Access to Y summer programs is especially important in the wake of the pandemic which kept many children isolated from friends and adult mentors. Many of our community’s families are working to recover from the economic challenges caused by the past year. We cannot let a family’s temporary financial constraints prevent children from having access to Y summer programs and services. Give today so that every child can experience the magic of summer at the Y.
Y staff members are trained to help children with mild to moderate diverse–abilities. However, our facilities are not adequately staffed to work with children who need significant assistance with personal care, constant one–to–one support, or have great difficulty managing their behavior in a group setting. If your child requires specialized accommodations, please contact your local YMCA family branch.
YMCA camp staff are dedicated to providing a safe and wholesome environment for each camper. Camp staff are chosen for their maturity, strong values, enthusiasm and ability to be positive role models for children.
Camp staff receive more than 40 hours in training prior to the start of camp. Training includes CPR, First Aid, child abuse prevention, emergency procedures, water safety, and updated COVID-19 protocols.
Camp staff perform face checks and take attendance numerous times throughout the day and at every transition.
Campers are only released to pre-authorized adults. Photo ID is required.
Campers and staff practice frequent handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Campers will be required to wash their hands upon arriving to camp, before and after meals, and as often as possible throughout the day.
Group sizes will be limited, and we will follow current guidance regarding camp group ratios and maximum campers per site. Campers will remain in consistent groups throughout the camp week.
Overnight Camp: Cabins have a maximum ratio of 1 staff to 7 campers.
We follow the current Washington State Department of Health and Snohomish Health District COVID-19 camp guidelines.
