Summer Season

Summer Day Camp

At Camp Weaver we offer a fun filled day summer camp experience for campers aged 6 to 12 years old. Children are grouped by age and make the journey to each camp activity under the supervision of Camp Weaver counselors. Each day, every camper will have the opportunity to participate in both land and water activities.

Our day camp is a great opportunity for children who may be looking to take that first step toward participating in overnight summer camp, but may not quite be ready to stay overnight.


Ages: 6+ year olds

Summer Day Camp Activities

Just because your camper isn’t staying overnight at summer camp doesn’t mean he or she has to miss out on the summer camp fun! We jam-pack day campers’ schedules with as many activities and fun experiences as we can while teaching each child core skills that they will keep with them as they grow up. Summer campers will participate in a wide variety of activities during their time at YMCA Camp Weaver Summer Camp. We hear every summer that day campers can’t wait to come back to camp day after day to see their friends, enjoy camp programs and soak in all of the fun summer activities.

"My boys absolutely loved this camp! They came home exhausted from all the activities and excited to get up early to start the next day. I put them in four different camps this summer, and this was by far their favorite camp!"
