Discover Y Camps!

Kids love the fun.

The Y is a place where kids come to learn, grow and thrive. At Y Camp every kid has FUN! in a friendly, safe environment. The YMCA of Greater Providence offers great summer opportunities in a wide variety of camps at different locations all designed to enhance and enrich your child’s summer.

Welcome to Y Camp 2015

We hope that you will join us this summer and discover the magic of camp!

Y camps offer values-oriented, camper-centered programs that help children discover their talents and feel a sense of belonging. Our activities combine friendships, adventure, and personal growth, creating days as unique as each camper and memories that last a lifetime. We offer a range of camp experiences through our Y branches and Camp Fuller, including day camps, extended day programs, and overnight camp. We design and deliver creative programs that are based on YMCA values; caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. We strive to nurture campers in a challenging and supportive environment where their safety and well-being are our priority.

Whether you sign up for one week or the whole summer, we offer the best camp value around! Our programs are directed by full-time YMCA professionals and staffed with dedicated, dynamic leaders. Our counselors are selected for maturity, understanding, patience, and a genuine interest in working with children. We hope that you and your family will make YMCA camp part of your summer experience! Click here to view our 2015 Y Camps Brochure.
