The Foundation of Y Summer Camps


The Y is giving kids their best summer ever through an immersive day-camp experience with activities to help them learn and master skills, make friends and feel welcome.  Through the Y's day-camp program, kids participate in fun and educational activities that will help them:

  • Learn and master skills that help them realize their passions, talents and potential.
  • Build relationships with new friends and staff role models that add to their well being.
  • Develop a sense of belonging so all campers feel safe, welcome and free to express their individuality.
  • Engage in play in a safe, supervised environment. All Y facilities are supervised and locked for your child's safety and security.
  • We are proud to provide swim lessons as part of each Sturgeon Bay summer camp.
  • A FREE well-balanced, nutritious lunch meal will be provided to each camper.
Our Foundation

Community Reputation

At the Y, you're not just a member of a facility; you're part of a cause with shared commitment to nurture the potential of youth, improve health and well-being and give back and support our neighbors.


Highly-Trained Staff

Our counselors, camp staff and lifeguards complete over 30 hours of pre-camp training, including CPR/AED, First Aid and Child Abuse Prevention. We conduct background checks, including finger printing, on all camp staff. Our counselors also learn child development best practices as well as techniques to encourage all campers to be inclusive and celebrate our differences.


Support of Family

We strive to offer options that fits every family's busy summer calendar. With full summer, daily and weekly rate options in Sturgeon Bay, along with three distinct three-week mini sessions in Northern Door, we are able to provide flexible options for nearly any situation - whether it's support for full-time working parents or parents/grandparents looking to infuse more fun into their child's summer.


Tradition and Values

The Y invented day camps to bring enriching experiences to children in the local communities they serve. With more than seasons of camp experience to build upon, this year is sure to be the best summer ever! The focus of summer camp is on fostering positive friendships, celebrating accomplishments and creating a sense of belonging through age-appropriate activities - both indoors and out - to help keep kids active, engaged and having fun!


Health & Safety

The YMCA is planning all Summer Camps with the utmost concern for the health and safety of our campers and staff. We have implemented procedures for social distancing, disinfecting and health and safety that we will continue throughout the summer.
