Outdoor Day Camp

Outdoor Day Camp

Grades 1 - 5

YMCA Outdoor Day Camp is what summer should be: the fun and freedom of the outdoors while learning new skills and making great friends!

Each week is filled with new activities to explore! Campers learn to respect and appreciate nature through fun adventures. Our days are jam-packed with activities that develop outdoor living skills and a comfort in exploring nature in the Pacific Northwest.

Camper weeks are rotations of skill development and exploration activities such as:
• Hiking and nature walks
• Swimming
• Nature crafts
• Archery
• Knot tying and compass navigation
• Group games and teamwork
• Outdoor living skills and camp cooking
• Environmental and ecosystem impacts

Skilled Y camp staff provide challenging, safe activities for each small group.

Field Trip Update

As you know, camp will look different this year as we adjust to keep kids and staff safe with daily health screenings and small groups, along with other health and safety protocols. Along those same lines, we will not be offering traditional field trips this year.

Instead of transporting kids to locations near and far, we will bring the field trips to them with specialized enrichment activities, and water and wheel days! Some kids may also go on walking trips with their small groups to nearby parks, nature trails, and more.
