STEM & SPORTS
Ages 9-12 | SEARCH CODE: CPSNS44 FIND SESSIONS
Why pick one sport when you can play them all? Each day will focus on a different sport such as soccer, basketball, football, dodgeball and more. STEM and Sports camp is designed to teach campers recreational sports and the value of exercise. Focus will be placed on team play and skill development. Along with fun sports we can't forget STEM! Smash! Explosion! Reactions! This camp also takes science to the extreme. Campers will have a memorable experience as they interact with experiments that pop, fizz, and crackle! Campers will learn about why reactions occur and then create the reactions first-hand. Your camper will participate in team building games, arts & crafts, science experiments, and more!

PAYING FOR CAMP
At the time of registration, you may choose to:
- Pay in full (includes a $50 non-refundable deposit)
- Place a $50 non-refundable deposit at the time of registration. Balances will be due the Monday prior to the first day of camp.
- An active membership is required at the time of the program start date to receive the member pricing discount.
- Financial assistance is available through the Y's ACCESS scholarship program.
Deposits are non-refundable but can be immediately applied as a deposit for another camp if space is available or applied to an already existing camp balance within the same summer. See our Refund/Voucer/Transfer Policies for more information.
When a day camp session is full, you may add your child to a waitlist enrollment — choose "Join Waitlist" during the registration process when signing up online. We’ll provide an update via email that lists all day camps with open availability. Registration is first come, first served. We recommend that families check the website often, as other spaces may become available prior to email communications going out.
Here's what our parents tell us:
"Thanks to YMCA for making this camp possible. My child was lonely at home and I was scared to send him to the camp. I decided to trust your organization. Overall my son had a lot of fun and came home with exciting stories about his camp experiences."
