Waterbury YMCA is proud to offer two day camps unmatched in customer service, quality, and most importantly, caring and professional staff. We inspire campers to learn and demonstrate the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility through positive role modeling and "teachable moments". Serving children 4 to 15 years of age, every day is a safe new adventure specifically tailored toward the age of your camper. Activities include archery, swimming, arts & crafts, boating, nature, hiking, family nights and more.

During the school year, the Outdoor Center offers many opportunities for fun, learning and growth. Consider joining us for one of our Vacation Camp programs on days off from school.
