Parents asked, and we listened: Y Kids Camp is back for children in grades K–5.
Part of a nationwide initiative, Y Kids Camp aims to battle summer learning “backslide” so kids return to school ready to learn.
Themed weeks, field trips, special events, and guest speakers are all on the horizon for this year’s Y Kids Camp. Literacy and STEM activities are blended seamlessly into the camp experience, where kids can practice skills in a fun, supportive environment.
Past camp activities have included making homemade volcanoes, visits to the Maine Wildlife Park, and swimming.
Y Kids Camp is a smaller program (limit 50 children) based right at the YMCA at 62 Turner Street in Auburn. It is a great option for younger children not quite ready for the bustle of Camp Connor and curious kids interested in hands-on learning.
*A non-refundable deposit of $35 per session is required to reserve your camper's spot. Online registrants must pay deposits at the time of registration. Financial assistance is available for qualifying families.
