Summer Camp FAQs

Scheduled camps operate Monday-Friday (excluding, Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, Monday, July 5 and Friday, August 6) and vary by location. Four-day camp weeks will be prorated. Attend as many weeks as you like at as many locations as you like! Register throughout the summer, as long as payment deadlines are met and space is available.

All children welcome, regardless of Greater Wichita YMCA membership. Children served by the Kansas Department of Children and Families accepted at each of our camp locations.
