Welcome to Summer Camp 2017! For more than 110 summers, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine has helped kids enjoy their summer through our core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. For kids, YMCA day camp is a fun way to enjoy the summer and for parents it’s a way to give children a positive experience that builds character. In YMCA day camps, kids will have fun making new friends, learning new skills, and growing in self-resilience. Communication and parent involvement are essential for a positive camp experience. Please make every attempt to read the literature posted at your child(ren)’s camp site, the electronic newsletters, and any information that is sent home. Your understanding and cooperation with camp policies will ensure a smooth summer for all of our children. This guide provides useful camp information. If you need additional information, have questions, or would like to discuss your child’s camp experience, please feel free to contact the camp program director. We look forward to serving your family this summer!
