When kids experience YMCA Day Camp, they experience something new every day… like the power of a positive mentor, the confidence that comes from trying—and succeeding—and the importance of building healthy, long-lasting friendships. But to our happy campers, Day Camp just feels like it’s all about having fun.
To provide the safest possible environment in all our camps, all counselors have been trained in CPR, first aid, abuse prevention and effective guidance and discipline. All staff members have passed a state criminal background check.
The Joplin Family Y offers three different Day Camp experiences, one of which is sure to meet your needs. All camps provide breakfast, lunch and a snack and include a focus on the Y's core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
