Summer Day Camp at the Y is more than looking after kids. It’s about nurturing their development by providing a safe place to learn fundamental skills, build self-reliance, and establish healthy, trusting relationships. But most of all, Summer Day Camp at the Y offers an experience that is always so much fun!

The YMCA of Greater Waukesha County has planned an exciting variety of Summer Day Camp programs conveniently located at 14 different sites throughout our service area. Our programs at the Y offer something for every child. Parents will have peace of mind knowing their children are in a safe and enriching environment with activities led by trained staff.


The YMCA of Greater Waukesha County takes the health and safety of each camper seriously. We will monitor CDC and other local and state agencies’ recommendations to make sure we are implementing protocols to keep campers healthy to the best of our ability. We will keep families apprised of our current protocols as we get closer to the start of Summer Day Camp.
