New Trips! More Activities! This summer, we have new games and new field trips! We also offer swimming, sports, and art.

NEW This Summer! • Enjoy new opportunities to meet and interact with your child’s counselors! From information about each counselor’s skills and abilities, to fun meet and greet events, you and your child will feel at ease in our care this summer even before camp starts! • Enjoy more detailed information about trips, activities, and events — information which comes your way a week ahead!

Safety Comes First Our day camps meet the highest health and safety standards of the Y and the NYS Health Department.

Great Fun! Great Value! Our Summer Camp is in full swing from 9AM until 4PM, Monday through Friday, with lots of fun things for your child to experience each day. In addition to a high-quality summer camp experience, we also offer before and after camp care at no additional charge!

Save $40 Each Day! From 7 to 9AM and from 4 to 4:30PM (Bradt Camp), and from 4 to 6PM (Adventure Camp), we care for your child before camp starts each day and after it ends each day at no additional charge. That’s a savings of at least $40 each day for each child.

Camps are inspected twice each year by the Department of Health and files are available for inspection at your county health department office. First Aid equipment is on site and staff are trained in First Aid and CPR.

Four Camp Options 1. Adventure Camp 2. Bradt Summer Camp 3. Jefferson Summer Camp 4. Sacandaga Summer Camp

Save $100! With our sibling savings option, you save more for each additional child you send together to camp. For each additional child who attends camp, you save $10 a week! That’s a savings of $100 for each child who spends the summer at the Y!
