Summer Camps

Summer Camps

Campers make friends while learning the values of diversity and cooperation

Camp 2022: June 13-August 12

This summer, the YMCA of Frederick County will offer more than 40 camps, including sports, art, humanities, outdoor adventure camps, and many more! Many camps will offer swimming, games, crafts, and character development activities.

Days will be filled with:

  • Fun camp activities to engage brains
  • Opportunities to explore, develop new skills, and try new things
  • Plenty of physical activity and games to keep bodies active


We have launched our new Camp software, using Brightwheel for our Check in/out process, for all camp documentation, and for messaging. Updates for certain camps, inclement weather, or other important information will be distributed through Brightwheel. All notifications will come through both the app and will be available via the browser version.

It is absolutely ESSENTIAL that every person dropping of or picking up has their individual CHECK-IN CODE. This can be found under your parent profile (and you can even change it to something you will remember). Please always have your ID with you at camp.

What to Bring to Camp & What to Leave at Home

All campers should bring, daily (please label all personal items for easier identification):

  • Lunch (Pack your camper’s lunch in a cooler/lunch bag with an ice pack. Food, beverages, and refrigeration are not available so please plan accordingly.)
  • Water bottle (a refillable water bottle)
  • Comfortable and appropriate clothing for their camp
  • Closed-toe shoes (no flip-flops or sandals)
  • Swimsuit & towel (Most camps swim once during the week, but the pool schedule is subject to change. Some camps may also choose to do water activities during the day.)
  • Sunscreen

Do not send your camper with valuables. Campers will be prohibited from using electronics during Before & After care and camp hours. The YMCA is not liable for lost, damaged, or stolen items. Also,  Please leave Pokémon cards at home.
