Join the Y this summer for a fun, active camp experience where old and new friends connect, learn and thrive. At YMCA camps in Berthoud, Boulder, Broomfield, Lafayette, Longmont, Loveland and Johnstown, campers unplug from technology, try new activities, experience hands-on learning and discover the great outdoors. The Y offers camp options for ages 3-16 from May 30-Aug 11.

The Y’s half- and full-day camps feature weekly themes and include a wide range of activities to meet all campers’ interests. Camp Noco, a traditional day camp, features camp songs and games, archery, gaga ball, color wars, STEM, arts and crafts and more.

Campers with specific interests will enjoy specialty camps that build skills in areas like biking and bike path riding, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), outdoor education or sport-specific clinics in soccer, lacrosse, volleyball and more. The Y’s new esports clinics will teach aspiring gamers about strategy, playing with others and guided challenges.

YMCA Camp Santa Maria is an overnight camp in beautiful Bailey, CO, where campers ages 6-17 connect with nature, make new friends and develop independence away from home. Activities include kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking, archery, campfire skits and more.

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify, and CCAP is accepted for some camps.
