YWCA Summer Camp




The YWCA is excited to announce our 2018 Summer Camp Program for children ages 5-12!

We are partnering with some amazing local programs such as Westminster College's Health, Wellness and Athletic Center, Wasatch Community Gardens, and The National Ability Center for a summer filled with awesome on-sight activities. At Westminster College your child will be taught by actual athletes of the school and will learn a variety of sports and ways to be active. At Wasatch Community Gardens your child will get their hands dirty by exploring their environment, planting and harvesting crops, and taste the foods that are grown right there in the garden by expert gardeners. At the National Ability Center you will participate in activities that will challenge you to reach new heights!

The YWCA Summer Camp Program seeks to create a well-rounded summer of learning, fun, and adventure! Our program provides daily field trips, awesome activities, a sense of community and long lasting friendships when you leave.

When we aren't out and about we will be utilizing the equipment and many play areas that our YWCA campus offers. With our fully equipped gym space, our open green space field, and our playground we will play organized games, team-building activities, and give the children plenty of creative free-play. Our facility includes basketball hoops, hula hoops, scooters, jump ropes, and much more. We will also benefit from are classroom which is fully furnished with games, books, computers, learning activities, and creative art supplies to embrace your child's interests.
