Camping at the Y offers an Experience for children and teens, not just care.

Exploring nature, swimming, shooting bows & arrows and making new friends are just some aspects of the experience of participating in Day Camp. As summer approaches, the Lakewood-Trumbull  Y reminds parents that camping is a unique and invaluable experience for children and teens.

The Y has plans for the summer and is gearing up for summer adventures that will keep kids active, engaged and healthy all summer long. Summer is the ideal time for kids to get up, get out and explore!

Four Ways to Get the Most Out of Summer Camp

Find Your Adventure

Summer is a time for kids to explore and expand the limits of their imagination. At Y summer camp, every day is a new adventure!

Find Your Spark

Kids discover hidden talents and passions they never knew they had.

Find Your Circle

At the Y, their experience like none other. Kids come away with new skills, confidence and friendships that broaden their perspectives and strengthen their character.

Find Your Friends

At YMCA camp, kids will make new friends and have tons of fun as they explore new adventures each day!

The Lakewood-Trumbull Y provides exciting and educational camp programming for children and teens and their parents. The social, emotional and physical benefits camp provides are more beneficial than ever before to help children and teens build lifelong connections and confidence. At YMCA camp, kids are in a welcoming environment where they can belong, build relationships and lasting friendships, develop character and discover their potential.

To ensure that every child and teen has the chance to go camping, the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA offers financial assistance to those in need. We believe that no one should be turned away because of their inability to pay. Come, let us help!

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.
