In order to have fun and thrive, kids of all ages need to feel both physically and emotionally safe. When you drop your child off at a day camp you can rest assured that their total well-being will be supported. At the Foundation YMCA of Wilson, kids and teens can develop skills, self-confidence, new friendships, and a sense of belonging – all while having tons of fun. Our camps fill up fast, so reserve your spot today! 

Here are five reasons why children and teens should attend summer camp:

1. ADVENTURE: Summer camp is all about a wide variety of new experiences and exploring the outdoors. YMCA camps have a new adventure for every child and teen.

2. HEALTHY FUN: Day camps offer fun, stimulating activities that engage the body and mind, and also help children and teens learn the importance of nutrition to help improve their healthy eating habits.

3. PERSONAL GROWTH: While in the welcoming environment of camp, youth have a chance to learn new skills, and develop confidence and independence by taking on new responsibilities and challenges. Camps offer cognitive learning and social-emotional development opportunities for achievement.

4. FRIENDSHIPS: Amidst the fun of camp games, activities and songs campers meet new friends and strengthen existing friendships. The bonds formed at camp are important and lasting for many youth.

5. MEMORIES: Summer camp is an unforgettable experience that creates memories (and camp traditions) that will last a lifetime. Youth return to school with plenty of camp stories to share!
