FUN. SAFE. PHYSICALLY ACTIVE. EDUCATIONAL. These are just some of the ways in which your child can experience the best summer ever with the Y!
As the largest state-licensed child care
provider in Kentucky, we make it our priority to meet or exceed the state standards of safety and quality. In addition, the Childcare Enrichment Program Summer Camp and Creative Adventures do more than just keep your child busy during the summer. Your kids stay engaged all while learning and exploring. This year, your camper has the opportunity to become a cowboy, explore the galaxy, make extra fun food, learn how they are unique, take part in a luau and much, much more. We make learning fun through enriching field trips and weekly, them-based activities that encourage kids to become engaged with science, reading, math and other fun subjects.
We provide flexible attendance options for all campers, including a 1-3 day rate and a 4-5 day rate, and there is no charge if your camper does not attend for the week.
SUMMER CAMP KICKOFF/PARENT ORIENTATION

WHAT'S FUN AT SUMMER CAMP?
The Childcare Enrichment Program and Creative Adventures teaches your child the importance of friendship, creativity, self-expression and making learning fun. In the YMCA's efforts to combat loss of knowledge
during the summer out-of-school months, we want to engage your kids in ways that make learning fun.
During Summer Camp, they'll get to have fun with learning, all while making new friends, swimming every week
, eating fun and healthy snacks, crafting, staying physically active
and engaging in exciting trips in and around the Greater Louisville community, including the Louisville Zoo, the Louisville Science Center, the Muhammad Ali Center, the Frazier Museum and many, many more.
Last summer, almost 1500 children participated in the Camp Readers Program! In addition, all of our Summer Camp participate in a partnership with the Louisville Free Public Library called the Summer Reading Program
, a program designed to encourage kids to read by finding books about subjects that specifically interest them. Kids have the opportunity to win prizes while reading age-appropriate material. Time for reading is provided daily at each camp and books are always available.
