fun for

all ages


The Bedford Area Family YMCA day campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork, and leadership with a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong healthy living. They have the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor environment where they develop an appreciation of nature. YMCA Day Camp offers children positive developmental experiences and encourages them to form relationships with each other and with staff, building confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age.

Today, Day Camp is more vital than ever, with an increased emphasis on child safety, summer learning traditions, values, and social skills.

Weekly activities are created based on the themes and field trips. With all locations coming together on Friday’s at the Bedford YMCA. FUN FRIDAY’S will tie the whole week together with SPECIAL activities that can include fun competitions between counselors & campers or site & site, awards presentation, magic, vendors, carnival games, at the Bedford YMCA. Swim Lessons are available for a nominal fee.
