SUMMER CAMP    Now through August 19, 2020

Lasting memories, new experiences and best friends are part of what makes summer such a special time. As a local leader in youth development for 100 years, our Y provides children with positive and fun experiences that build confidence, new friendships and a sense of belonging that will last beyond the summer.

From swimming to the arts, your child will discover a summer of exploration and new skills taught by our highly-trained staff. Our renowned curriculum has been developed to help close the summer learning gap - while school’s out of session - integrating physical exercise, structured / spontaneous play, literacy, STEM-based activities, nutrition and more.

The safety of our campers and staff is our top priority and we take this responsibility very seriously. We are committed to making our summer camps just as safe as the emergency relief care we offered while schools were closed. YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg staff are very experienced in keeping children and staff safe, especially during these uncertain times. Click here to learn more about our safety guidelines for Summer Camp.
