Very few environments are as special as summer camp.  It's a rare experience where kids and counselors become a community.  Our counselors are vested in immersing campers in daily activities that encourage them to try new things while celebrating their talents and gifts.  The YMCA is planning a summer filled with old favorites and new adventures.  Whether your child comes for one week or the entire summer, we invite them to be a part of the YMCA's safe, nurturing and inclusive summer camp.

Kids enrolled in summer day camp at the Fox Valley Family YMCA have the best that summer has to offer right at their fingertips. Campers will enjoy daily dips in our pool and use of our Aqua Track obstacle course, gymnasium, outdoor pavilion, and 17 acres of outdoor space. Each day is a new adventure, from practicing a talent show act with friends to cooling off with a ride down the giant slip-n-slide; the possibilities are endless!

Our summer day camp also offers enrichment programs in gymnastics, dance, music, theatre and sports that will further enhance your child’s summer. Counselors will safely escort children to and from any programs they attend. These programs are discounted for Summer Campers.

camp counselors 

You can depend on the Y to make sure that all camp activity areas are well supervised. As role models, camp counselors are selected for sound judgment, maturity, experience, enthusiasm and creativity. All employees are interviewed and go through an extensive background check, and fingerprinting prior to being hired and are trained in CPR, first aid, and child abuse prevention.

The Y and our camp counselors are here to help kids flourish socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically. Rooted in caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, our holistic approach works wonders, preparing kids for life, one fantastic summer at a time.

Summer Day Camp is located at Central and West branch in Plano and Sandwich, il.  Camp runs Mon-Friday from 6:30 am – 6:00 pm with programming from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please call 630-552-4100 for more information.
