At the Y, we are committed to giving kids the "Best Summer Ever"™ through an enriching day-camp experience in a safe and nurturing environment with activities to help them learn and master skills and develop bonds with their peers. 


All camps share a common mission: to encourage character growth through caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. All participants receive a complimentary, nutritious lunch through our Summer Foods program. 


Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) - This training program gives individuals entering Grade 7 and up the opportunity to give back to the program and their communities by assisting our camp counselors. we will be selecting Youth in grades 7 & up to become a part of our LIT program. If you are interested in being considered please apply. Interviews and decisions will be made by Monday, June 1st. The program’s goal is to provide participants with opportunities to improve their leadership skills and to be an example of the Y’s four core values - honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. In addition, L.I.T.s develop skills needed to deal effectively with groups of children, organization, safety awareness, and motivation. *Must complete an in-person interview with the branch director before.

Summer Foods


The Door County Y’s Sturgeon Bay Program Center will once again sponsor the Summer Foods Program, where any child 18 and under that would like a free lunch during the summer will be fed a well-balanced, nutritious meal.

With a mission to promote a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, and a focus on youth development, fueling the brains and bodies of Door Community kids is what The Y is all about.


Participants in Sturgeon Bay Summer Camp programs will receive free breakfast and lunch through this program, while other community locations will be served a lunch, or snack, according to a set schedule.
