Fun In The Sun

Beach Club is a wonderful opportunity for children to make friends and enjoy the beautiful costal area we are blessed to live in. Participants get lots of exercise and have fun in the water, sand, and sun; a perfect combination of what we all need now more then ever! There is never a dull moment as we swim, fish, clam, kayak, and paddleboard. Participants should be strong swimmers having the ability to swim 25 yards without any floatation, be comfortable in open water, as well as treading and swimming in deep water. Participants will need to bring their energy and endurance as it is a very physical program. Join us as we explore Fairfield’s five beautiful beaches and estuaries, as well as form friendships that will last a lifetime.

Summer Day Camp

Cover Image.pub

The YMCA believes all kids have great potential and deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. At YMCA day camp kids and teens can develop skills, self-confidence, new friendships and a sense of belonging – all while having tons of fun.

In order to have fun and thrive, kids of all ages need to feel both physically and emotionally safe. When you drop your child off at a camp, you can rest assured that their total well-being will be supported. Safety is always our number one priority! We keep kids healthy and safe while providing enriching experiences. As a leading nonprofit committed to nurturing the potential of youth, the Y has been a leader in providing summer camp for over 130 years. Our experienced and caring staff and volunteers model the positive core Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility that help build character.
