STEM SUMMER DAY CAMP

Topics being discussed include: check in/out processes, cleaning procedures, group sizes and play, etc. We are anticipating this information within the week and will link all COVID-19 operation plans as soon as they are solidified.

STEM SUMMER DAY CAMP

AGES: BEGINNER 5-8 YEARS OLD  |  ADVANCED 8-12 YEARS OLD

In partnership with Weber State University (Ogden Campus), the YMCA is excited to offer this specialty Summer Day Camp to kids with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)! While these camps provide lots of opportunities for your camper to experiment, engineer, and explore- they also get to participate in a well-rounded camp experience focused on achievement, relationship, and belonging! Each week, the YMCA brings in specialized instructors and experts to provide unique, hands-on activities and demonstrations, offering your camper more in-depth exposure to some of our most popular topics. Camp days include a morning and afternoon snack, and lunch long with weekly field trips and swimming days!

Did you know that if you qualify for free lunch at school, you qualify for FREE day camp at this location?!
