Camp offers care to families in need

The Bostwick YMCA opened its doors in July to offer a safe Summer Camp for more than 140 campers, which included themed activities – and a lot of fun!

In mid-July, the Bostwick YMCA opened its doors to provide Summer Camp for families that required emergency care. Camp was run on a much smaller scale this year, but we were able to provide more than 140 campers with care at our YMCA branch – and over 1,000 campers across the association.

Although camp looked a little bit different, children were able to be active and socialize in a safe environment. Each week had themes, such as Ooey Gooey, Heroes, and Storybooks & Fairytales. Children were excited each Friday dressed in their costumes!

Built on the principles of YMCA Healthy Child Development and our ‘Y values’ (caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and inclusiveness), our experienced and well-educated staff ensure that your children receive the highest level of care.
