Y campers stretch themselves physically and creatively. We have an action-packed summer planned full of arts & crafts, swimming, sports, recreation, and character development. They participate in science experiments, solve puzzles, craft art, and perform music and shows.
Due to COVID-19, we are not planning any field trips this summer.
Yes! Our camp's focus is on social-emotional learning support and friendship skills. What does that mean? Our camp is designed to encourage character development and promote friendship building. Feeling like you belong is crucial to the success of youth and is a high focus throughout our daily lessons.
Our camp is designed to improve students’ educational readiness while helping them grow emotionally and physically, too.
Campers will learn social-emotional strategies, many new games and activities, and ways to connect to the world outside of technology.

Medications must be in the original prescribed container with the child’s name and dosage. Parents will fill out a medication form that will remain with the child’s counselor. Epi-Pens and Inhalers will be able to stay with the child’s counselor in the grades’ camp backpack in a labeled baggy. Other medications that need to be given during camp hours will be locked in the camp director’s camp backpack and given at the prescribed time. All medication given will be signed off with dosage amount and time given with staff initials.
On extremely hot days, please send extra water. We will conduct activities under the pavilion to provide shade.

Parents will be notified by 5:00am same day via the Remind App (this App will be mandatory for all camp parents to download this year for improved communication). In this case, pick-up and drop-off will be at the Butler YMCA.
South Butler - Day Camp will remain outside rain or shine! The pavilion is covered on three sides to protect us from inclement weather. In the case of severe storms, we will seek shelter in SEBCO pool’s changing rooms or the bathrooms at the park.
