YMCA summer camps in Connecticut have provided generations of families with a traditional day camp experience. Nationally, YMCA Camps have become the place to go for kids to unwind, make new friends, and learn new skills, all while spending time in nature. Luckily for Connecticut parents, there are likely some YMCA summer camps near you, but these options offer a little something extra. Pick from day camps, overnight camps, and specialty YMCA camps in Fairfield County, Hartford County, New Haven County, and beyond that will have your children counting down the days until school lets out.
