Summer Day Camp

2017 Day Camp Parent Handbook

Day Camp at Camp Carter is a great way for children to experience the outdoors and make new friends! Day Camp is for campers between 5 – 12 years old who want to develop new skills, try new activities such as archery, team building, canoeing and much more! Day campers at YMCA Camp Carter are also served a home-style lunch in the Camp Carter Dining Hall and receive a late afternoon snack. Campers get to swim everyday too.

Check in as early as 7 am, and check out as late as 6 pm, no other Day Camp can compare!

Day camp runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.
