Camp Greenwood Helps Youth Experience Their Best Summer Ever

Programming keeps kids moving, exploring and learning

Do you remember your best summer ever? Did you stay all day with your friends at the local pool? Did you head to the local park and play basketball? Or was your best summer the summer you discovered your favorite literary heroes and followed their adventures from the comfort of your own backyard? For most, your best summer ever was probably a combination of all of these—some exploration, activity and education.

 

Summer is the ideal time to get children out and exploring but for some, the end of the school year means no access to recreational and educational activities which help them learn, grow and thrive. Studies show that children can experience learning loss and even gain weight twice as fast than during the school year. For parents and caregivers looking to keep their children’s minds and bodies active, we continue to offer summer camp to give youth an adventurous, active and healthy summer.

 

YMCA Camp Greenwood programs provide a fun and unique experience that gives children and teens the opportunity to explore the outdoors, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime. Camp typically includes a choice of activities, crafts, songs, reading, swimming, physical activity and field trips. In addition, your camper will experience archery, hiking, climbing and other fun activities.

 

Camp provides a variety of opportunities to ensure that youth are learning and being physically active in the summer. Campers learn how to be responsible and resourceful, work in groups, solve problems and make decisions that will help them grow as individuals—all while having fun and feeling like they belong. We want every camper to start school telling their friends that they had the best summer ever.

 

Camp Greenwood runs from June 6 – August 12 in one week sessions. We also have a variety of specialty camps that span over 8 weeks of the summer.

 

It’s back! Little Explorers Kinder Camp provides rising K4 and K5 students with a safe place where they can make friends, build confidence by improving on basic kindergarten skills, and most of all have fun! Each day is designed to promote camper’s social development and prepare them for structured educational activities. Each week has a theme and offers activities centered on stories, crafts, games, and more.

 

We are looking forward to a wonderful summer!

 

Together, we can build a better us:

Upcoming Programs

Register for Youth Baseball

Early registration Now Open

The Greenwood YMCA Youth Baseball program is designed to be a developmental league for the youngest players. We teach kids ages 4 – 9 the necessary skills they need to master before moving on to play travel baseball or softball.

Our youngest players learn to hit from a T in T-ball. They learn to field and catch with the help of our talented coaches.

Our YMCA T-ball and baseball programs meet the athlete where he or she is and builds their skills from there. Whether their first season is at age 4 or age 9, YMCA coaches will help them get in the game and enjoy their experience.

Playing organized sports is one of The Search Institute’s “Developmental Assets,” which are predictors for developing into a well-adjusted teen and adult.

Ages: 4 – 9 as of August 1, 2015
