Great Summers Start Here!
At McGaw Y Summer Day Camp, kids can develop skills, self-confidence, new friendships, and a sense of belonging – all while having tons of fun.
We provide a variety of choice-based “camptivities” such as archery, fishing, games and sports, arts and crafts, drama, science, swimming, field trips, and more. A McGaw Y Day Camp experience offers kids the chance to learn new things and enjoy new adventures.
REGISTER FOR DAY CAMP
Registration is available for campers in Rising 1st grade through Rising 5th grade. Day Camp registration offers flexible options for families. Summer Day Camp typically takes place at a local District 65 school. Register for the full 9 weeks of summer, or choose individual weeks.
