Camp Description

In partnership with Weber State University, the Y is offering Specialty Summer Day Camps to kids and teens, focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Outdoor Adventures, Art, and other exciting topics.  These camps will provide lots of opportunities for your camper to experiment, engineer, and explore all while receiving a well-rounded camp experience focused on achievement, relationship, and belonging.   The Y brings in specialized instructors to provide unique, hands-on activities and demonstrations, offering your camper more in-depth exposure to some of our most popular topics.

Schedule

Camp Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm
