YMCA Day Camp


YMCA Day Camp is a safe and fun way to enjoy summer. Kids age 5 who have also completed a full day school program such as TK, Kindergarten or full day preschool through kids entering 5th grade can make new friends, learn new skills and have fun. This summer we are offering weekly sessions of YMCA Day Camp all summer. The kids will be participating in daily crafts, physical activities, games, and swimming at the Le Mars Outdoor Pool in the afternoons. Each week we will be enjoying field trips, archery and fishing. Bring your walking shoes because we will be walking to local parks and other sites for more fun! Afternoon snacks will be provided by camp counselors at camp. Each camper will need to bring their own sack lunch, water bottle and sunscreen each day. YMCA Day Camp is offered in a group setting, we are able to provide some accommodations however we are unable to provide one-on-one care. Summer camp is one of the most cherished childhood memories. Join Krista Bolton, our Camp Director, and our camp counselors this summer for another season of fun and adventure.
