Portrait of a group of diverse and happy kids hanging out together outside

Grades 6–8

Middle School Day Camps offer exciting and choice-based activities that empower kids to follow their own path.

Offerings in STEM, athletics, digital media, and the arts (painting, music, culinary, dance, drama) ensure that students are having fun while continuing to learn throughout the summer! At the Y, rest assured that whatever track your child engages in, they will have a safe and positive environment to grow and build lasting relationships with their peers.
