Online and in-person Early Bird Registration begins January 3, 2022. Westfield Area YMCA Summer Day Camps provide safe, engaging, fun and meaningful camp experiences with enriching activities, fitness, and social and emotional learning for children ages 3-15.
Campers enjoy a variety of activities and themes every day with friends and peers exploring math, science, arts, sports, nature and global diversity. Our curriculum promotes teamwork, enhances self-esteem and builds skills while incorporating the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Our staff receive over 20 hours of pre-camp training including certification in CPR for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid with EpiPen administration, asthma inhaler training, anti-bullying prevention, behavior management, child abuse awareness and much more. We also have a full time first responder on staff for summer camp.
Our camps are accredited by the American Camp Association and meet up to 300 standards for health, safety and program quality. As safety is our #1 priority, all camps meet or exceed CDC and Health Department guidelines. Camps and activities are subject to change based on guidelines in place at the time of camp.
Whether due to unemployment, poor health, or special circumstance, people struggle to provide for their families. Thanks to the Annual Support Campaign, each year the Westfield Area YMCA provides over $350,000 in direct financial assistance to individuals and families in need to enable their participation at the Y. Please give the gift of camp today. Financial assistance is available for Traditional, Extended Day and Leadership camps.
