10 Days of Adventures!

Day 1   Let's start the adventure!  Enter to win by clicking here.

Day 2  Our summer camp adventures start in the backyard at the Y...which is a perfect setting for stories, getting to know each child, provides the opportunities for songs, fun skits and games.  This is our spot and we are surrounded by trees, green grass and see a variety of animals too that also play in our backyard. Enter to win the pool party we are giving away by clicking here.

Day 3  Every adventure requires the proper nutrition...to keep that energy up, have the right nutrients in our bodies and to help us be the healthiest versions of us!  At the Y, our garden provides learning opportunities to kids and also some valuable taste tests in the future weeks of camp.  Kids have a chance to help us build the garden from the ground up.  The old stuff is removed, the dirt is tilled and the seeds get planted.  We all know that gardens require care throughout the summer...and our campers are given the opportunity to learn, try and watch their garden grow.  Our nutrtion expert at the Y also helps them try some of the foods out...that they helped grow!  Enter to win the pool party we are giving away by clicking here.

Day 4!  Our summertime adventures at Y Summer Camp take us on a journey as we travel along the amazing bike and walking paths that our city of Rochester has created...to one of our local parks.  The Roy Sutherland Playground is located right next to the Y and our campers get to explore this playground as they slide, climb, run and have fun in their groups.  This isn't the only local playground that is within walking distance to our facility, which is so exciting and fun for the campers because they get to play on not just one playground, but two!  We are also located next to Soldier's Field which features a track, baseball diamonds and green space galore!

We can't wait for our picnics and story time in the parks...and we hope that you will join us this summer too!  Learn more about Summer Camp here:  Summer Camp Info

Day 5  "On the Sunday before horseback riding camp at the Y, my son was pretty nervous. I'll be honest. So was I. I'm not a farm girl...I am a city girl and so I am raising my kids as city kids. These experiences that the Y is providing at Summer Camp are things that I wish I would have done as a child. I encouraged my little one to enjoy the day, try something new...because not all kids have a chance at these experiences growing up. My son came home from camp and let me know loudly and with excitement that he LOVED horseback riding and would like to buy a horse...and he can now take care of it because he learned how today."  Y Summer Camp mom

Providing adventures for kids each day...city kids or not...the adventures are for all kids! We remember this little boy last year and we can honestly tell you that he had an amazing summer. *the mom has let us know that they did not buy a horse but they will be back for horseback riding camp.*

Day 7  Every child has unique gifts, talents and interests and at the Y's Summer Camp, we have created camps with that in mind.  Our Fine Arts camps let kids explore their creativity as they create skits, participate in plays together, mold creations with clay and develop masterpieces of art with paint, sand and other materials.  Adventures await for all kids at the Y...and we can't wait to see what the campers create this year during our Fine Arts camps!

Day 10!  This day is a little bit more on the special side because Summer Camp at the Y isn't just an adventure for our campers...our Summer Camp Counselors have adventures too.

Right now, we are hand picking the staff for our Y Summer Camp and we are truly excited for the individuals that have already joined our team.  These individuals are excited to be spending the summer with your child...learning who they are as a person, their likes, dislikes, favorite colors and games, how their past year of school went and as it gets closer again to the next school year, the hopes, fears and excitement that they have for their next year.  

Every child is unique and has talents that we can't wait to explore. The Y Summer Camp Counselors will spend countless hours with your child and the friendship will develop...and your child will see their counselor as their role model.  This might even be a role model that lasts for years throughout their life and helps your child make positive decisions in their future. 

As one mom told us recently, "the one-on-one attention that the counselors provided was amazing!"  We agree.  Our Counselors are a piece of Y Summer Camp that completes the entire camp experience for your little camper.  

Join our team and apply to be a Y Summer Camp Counselor today!  We have about 5 more openings to fill.  Send us a message for more info.
