Camping With a Purpose
Our exceptional programs encompass all of what the Y is and stands for; developing our youth, fostering new friendships, teaching new skills and activities and much more – all while keeping our campers safe and well cared for.
Through the direction of our staff, campers will gain new abilities, challenge themselves with the unexplored and learn to work with others as a team. Nothing is more rewarding than watching a camper’s joy as they learn a new skill or meet new friends. Here at the Rye YMCA we have eager role models that are excited to share this experience with you!
What sets us apart is our passionate and dedicated staff. Rye YMCA camps are led by a team of full-time professional directors. Our summer staff is selected for their strong character, maturity, enthusiasm and commitment to our Y values and serve as “Professional Role Models” for our campers. We provide extensive staff training, drills and preparation which includes child abuse prevention, criminal background checks and safety training.
Y Cares Financial Assistance
Through generous donations and volunteer support we are able to send hundreds of children to camp every summer who may not have afforded our programs otherwise. The Rye YMCA offers financial assistance for families who qualify. If you need assistance with the application or have questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you would like to support the Annual Campaign please make a pledge on the registration form or visit the Rye YMCA website and learn more.
We provide a supervised extension to a camper’s typical day for all camps with the exception of Kinder Camp. Extended Care AM is available for Discovery, Sports, Adventure, CITs and Specialty Camps directly at the Osborn School and for Gymnastic Camp at the Rye YMCA. In the afternoon all campers are bused to the Rye YMCA. Extended care is not available for Kinder Camp Programs. Campers register for individual weeks.
Morning Care – 7:30am – Camp
Afternoon Care – Camp – 6:30pm
Make Camp Even More Affordable
Sign up for monthly payments at the Member Services Desk and spread your camp payments out from registration through July 15th. (One session of Discovery Camp is less than $70/month if you start payments in January!)
