Summer Day Camp

Monett Area YMCA

Y Summer Day Camps for kids who have completed grades Kindergarten-6th in 2020 are full of learning, adventure, active play and friendship. A wide variety of camp experiences include field trips, swimming, arts and more.

No two weeks of camp are the same! Throughout the summer, we feature different themes filled with new activities, experiences and memories. Whether it’s playing a new sport, learning about science and nature or exploring their creativity, your child will build confidence and develop friendships that last a lifetime.

All trip admissions, morning breakfast and afternoon snacks are included. Please send a sack lunch with your child every day.
