The Ridgewood YMCA camp is a day camp for ages 3 - 14 years. For the younger campers as young as 3 - 5, camp is specially designed to provide a safe environment where kids will play, grow, learn new skills and have plenty of new experiences. Days are filled with fun and stimulating activities including swim lessons, games, theme days, art projects and special guests. Note: Children need to be fully potty-trained to attend camp. For the older kids ages 6-11 years, building confidence by accomplishing goals is the main idea! Kids become a community as they learn how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. They learn self-reliance and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership, but also have fun in sports, art, games, outdoor adventure, water activities and meaningful relationships. Plus, they have specialized instructors in STEM, arts and crafts, swim and sports are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
