As we continue to navigate this post-pandemic world we have updated our COVID-19 Operational Guide. The following information provides an update to our families on how Camp will be mitigating the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.


Active and Engaged Campers

We recognize that kids need a safe and stimulating environment during the summer where they can develop skills, have fun, and build positive relationships with peers and adults. That’s why the Greater Waterbury YMCA offers three summer day camps serving Waterbury and the surrounding towns where 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.

An Experienced Camp Staff You Can Trust

The quality of our camping staff is what sets us apart. Our staff members are seasoned youth development professionals with extensive camp experience and a passion for what they do. Our number one goal is to provide the safest, most enriching environment possible for you and your family.

Whether your camper is exploring the outdoors or enjoying learning new skills and activities, we are sure that your child will have a blast and a half at camp!
