YMCA of Coastal Georgia Summer Camps 2018 Savannah

Registration for YMCA of Coastal Georgia Summer Camp 2018 programs opens March 1.

YMCA camp programs offer a fun and unique experience that gives children and teens the opportunity to have the best summer ever, by meeting new friends, exploring nature, discovering new interests, being physically active and creating memories that last a lifetime.

Day Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper- all summer long.

Day Camps at the YMCA run on a weekly basis, Monday through Friday, for children ages 5-13 years. You can pick and choose which weeks you would like to attend; come just one week or the whole summer!

Camp operates from 9 am -4 pm daily, with drop off starting at 7AM and pick up ending at 6PM.

Cost
Traditional Day Camp: Specialty Camp

Member rate: $100/ a week Member rate: $125/ a week
