YMCA Day Camps & Camp Lakewood

YMCA Camp Lakewood

At the YMCA, we can’t wait to welcome your child to enjoy summer as it should be: fun, action-packed, and most of all, safe! Safety is our first priority and we are committed to following guidelines set forth by our local health officials.

We offer camps throughout the summer for ages 3-17. Camps range from traditional outdoor camp to special interest camps such as sports, aquatics, arts & humanities, and teens. We also offer Before & After Camp Care as an add-on at an additional fee.

The YMCA has been helping youth learn and grow for over 100 years and draws upon that experience to operate high quality, inclusive, supportive and safe camps. Your camper will be engaged by our trained, dedicated staff team in fun and enriching activities that keep youth active, develop new friendships, promote learning, and build self-esteem and leadership skills.

Take adventure to a higher level at YMCA Camp Lakewood, our overnight camp. At Camp Lakewood, kids love the extensive list of activities we offer, which create opportunities to challenge, inspire, create and enjoy. From arts & crafts to horseback riding, zip lines to kayaking, Camp Lakewood’s activities are second to none and everything campers love.


Kids for Critters Camps

Humane Society Kids for Critters Camps

We will celebrate ALL animals, all week long as we engage in fun, interactive games and activities, meet animal experts and ambassadors and put our compassion into action through service projects that benefit animals. Embark on a scavenger hunt in our shelter, explore animal-related careers, become a Jr. humane officer, observe surgery, make animal enrichment toys, decorate kennels and much, much more! Campers will have many opportunities to interact with our shelter animals and guest animals. Popular activities include training and reading to our shelter animals and socializing shelter kittens and cats. These activities provide enrichment and socialization for them as they await their life-long loving homes. A highlight of our week-long camp is our day-long fieldtrip on Wednesday to our Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, MO where we enjoy a wagon ride around the sanctuary and get up close and personal with our beloved Barn Buddies and their fellow farm animal friends who have been rescued and rehabilitated by our loving staff.

Camps run Mon-Fri from 9am-3pm. After-care options are available. COVID-safety protocols will be in place. See our website for more details.
