Give your kids a life-changing experience! Each summer, the Princeton Family YMCA has inspired kids with countless opportunities to laugh, lead and make lasting friends. Together, our proven programs and trained counselors deliver meaningful and memorable camp experiences that keep families coming back year after year. Our day camps welcome all kids to discover who they are and imagine who they can be, with programs that foster lifelong skills, build self-confidence and create friendships.

At the Y, we know that when kids are given an opportunity to accomplish things, make friends, and feel like they belong, they are comfortable expressing individuality and feel more confident, connected and supported. We focus on these youth development areas to ensure that kids in our day camp program go home with so much excitement for all they’ve accomplished and enjoyed, that they can’t wait to come back the next day.

Our camps are accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA) which set the highest standards for camps in the nation. ACA Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo a thorough review of its operations – from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. This important seal of approval means we comply with up to 300 health, safety and program quality standards. We have gone to great lengths to provide a safe and enjoyable environment.

SPECIALTY CAMPS are designed to offer activities on a particular interest or topic, all while incorporating overall traditional YMCA camp principles. Specialty Camps are very enriching and in most cases very educational. Weeks are designed to provide an intense exposure and are a great way for campers to add even more variety to their summer experience.

Since our beginnings, the Princeton Family YMCA has been committed to the healthy development of children through a broad range of programs that capture their imaginations, instill positive values, build self-esteem and teach fundamental skills. YMCA Summer Day Camp is one of the most powerful ways for your children to learn lessons that will serve them throughout their lives – and this summer, we invite your family to join us to be a part of something very special.

At Princeton Family YMCA Summer Day Camps, your child will gain skills, try new things and grow in confidence and self-assurance, while practicing the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility as part of daily camp life. By participating in a larger community, your child will learn teamwork, hone social skills and make many new friends. Our culturally diverse team of counselors brings enthusiasm, responsibility, knowledge and a genuine love for children to their jobs. Staff members are carefully selected and receive extensive pre-season camp training that includes risk management, character development and program policies.

We hope that you will consider joining our camp family this summer.  It’s sure to be another great season!
