Find Day Camps

What’s unique about a Y summer? Well, first you’d have to answer “what is the Y?” It could be any of our amazing facilities throughout the Treasure Valley, including our newest one in south Meridian, or even our campgrounds at Horsethief Reservoir; but it’s more than that! The Y isn’t just a place, it’s an opportunity to make new friends, discover your potential, experience something new, and just have fun. Summer at the Y focuses on three key drivers of the impact that inspire healthy, youth development journeys: achievement, relationships, and belonging. YMCA camps nurture and celebrate the social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development of all youth. Join us on a summer journey at your favorite Y location. We’ll see you here!
