Summer Day Camp

Day Camp at Camp Carter is a great way for children to experience the outdoors and make new friends!
Day Camp is for campers between age 5 that have completed Kindergarten thru age 12 years old who want to develop new skills, try new activities such as archery, team building, canoeing and much more! Day campers at YMCA Camp Carter are also served a home-style lunch in the Camp Carter Dining Hall and receive a late afternoon snack. Campers get to swim everyday too.

Daily program activities run Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

YMCA member – $200 per week per child
Non- Members – $250 per week per child

Day Camp weekly themes are designed to encourage campers to come enjoy the outdoors, while making new friends, gaining self confidence, challenging themselves to new activities and to thrive in a natural environment. We embrace the power of Yet and help them understand that they may not know how to do that skill or activity “yet” but we help our campers by encouraging them to continue to try and not give up.

All Day Campers must be at least 5 and have completed Kindergarten prior to camp – through age 12

Themes are used to provide a little variety each week for campers that are attending multiple weeks. YMCA Camp Carter is a very traditional OUTDOOR ADVENTURE camp with lots of activities. Themes are not meant to suggest that the week is a specialty camp.


“My children are happy when they are at camp, and look forward to going back each day. This says a lot about your program.” – Summer Camp Parent
