With an Assist from Beagle Scout Snoopy – Summer Means Exciting New Camp Adventures for Kids in our community!

As spring turns into summer, the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA —along with national YMCA partner Peanuts and outdoor-loving Beagle Scout Snoopy—are excited to offer a wide variety of upcoming programs to keep kids active, engaged, and healthy all summer long.

Peanuts Worldwide is helping the Y increase summer camp access across the globe so more kids can experience the adventure. Learn more here.

“The social, emotional and physical benefits that camp provides are so important, and we’re thrilled to be able to open and to help children and teens build lifelong connections and confidence,” said Tim Bartlett, CCCY President & CEO. “In our summer camp, kids are in a welcoming environment where they can belong, they’re building relationships, developing character, and discovering their potential. We really encourage parents to give their kids the gift of camp to keep them active and engaged all summer long.”

“We are delighted to help make the Y’s healthy and fun-filled summer activities available to more children around the world,” said Melissa Menta, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications for Peanuts Worldwide. “The kind of joyful outdoor adventures that pop up throughout the Peanuts comic strip should be accessible to children everywhere.”

Summer Camp offers four key benefits through which children can have the experience of a lifetime this summer:

Kids Discover the Fun and Freedom of Outdoor Activities

Summer is a time for kids to explore, stretch, play, and imagine. Every day is a new adventure, with outdoor and sports activities.

Kids Discover Their Hidden Talents

Kids discover hidden talents and passions they never knew they had, thanks to artistic, creative, and STEM activities.

Kids Discover New Social Skills and Self-Confidence

There is a host of activities and programs that broaden kids’ perspectives, strengthen their character, and develop their leadership skills.

Kids Discover New Friends!

Through engaging group activities and play, kids naturally make new friends—and together they have tons of fun as they tackle new adventures each day!
