Summer Day Camp


Summer Day Camp is a great experience for your child. Campers swim, make arts & craft projects, play games and learn valuable character values while developing lifelong friendships. Each week of camp has a specific theme with an exciting field trip to places like the county fair, Columbus Zoo, COSI, Wapakoneta Waterpark, and many more! Camp operates during the Wapakoneta City Schools summer break daily from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.  The YMCA also offers extended camps for parents who need childcare before or after the typical camp day. Before care runs from 6:00-9:00am and After care runs from 4-6:00pm.
