Southern Saratoga YMCA Day Camp
Entering Grades 1 – 8
We help your child build confidence while enjoying a variety of activities that encourage your child to develop independence while learning new skills. Campers enjoy swimming, sports, art, special events and Pizza Fridays (Two slices of pizza on Fridays included in the price). Children enjoy activities that involve social interaction, educational opportunities, leadership building, personal growth and creativity. Campers are divided into groups by age, with activities appropriate to the interests and needs of each group. Each week has a fun theme and for grades 3 and up includes a field trip! Children also engage in community building projects and many opportunities for personal growth with our focus on discovery, hands-on education, and enriched learning opportunities.
Swim Lessons Available!
Summer camp is a great time for your child to learn to swim. It’s convenient for you, and great fun for your child! We offer swim lessons two days a week. Your child will learn floating, basic swim strokes and skills appropriate for her/his age and swim level — all under the guidance of our certified swim instructors. ($10 per week for members, $20 per week for non-members)

Great Fun! Great Value!
Our Summer Camp is in full swing from 9am until 4pm, Monday through Friday, with lots of fun things for your child to experience each day. In addition to a high-quality summer camp experience, we also offer before and after camp care at no additional charge!
Save $40 Each Day!
From 7 to 9am and from 4 to 6pm, we care for your child before camp starts each day and after it ends each day at no additional charge. That’s a savings of at least $40 each day for each child.
With our sibling savings option, you save more for each additional child you send together to camp. For each additional child who attends camp, you save $10 a week! That’s a savings of $100 for each child who spends the summer at the Y!
