Featured Camp: Summer Camp at the YMCA!

Summer Camp at the YMCA South Hampton Roads

Day camp, golf camp, overnight camp… this summer is bursting with opportunities for kids to return to the normalcy offered by summer camps at the YMCA! It has been a tough year for everyone, and kids all over Hampton Roads are ready to see their friends, make new friends, and get back to the important job of summer fun.

The YMCA of South Hampton Roads offers programs for kids ages 4-16, here is an overview of available camps for Summer 2021!

 

OVERNIGHT CAMP

Camp Silver Beach is usually SOLD OUT by February and because the YMCA wasn’t sure if they could have camp, there are a few spots available – most in the first and last weeks of camp. Camp Silver Beach really is a life-changing experience for children!!

Description: With loads of activities packed on 151 beautiful acres of forest, field and wetlands, and 1,200 feet of pristine Chesapeake Bay beachfront, Camp Silver Beach (ages 8-16) provides opportunities for campers to build confidence, learn sportsmanship, find potential, grow friendships and develop a healthy sense of independence. Lessons about respect and honesty come packaged in water adventures, woodland walks, and campfire sing-a-longs. The camp maintains a 4-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio with counselors who are highly trained, positive, and enthusiastic role models.

YMCA members save $100/session on summer camp. Sibling/buddy discounts are also available.
