Camp registration opens on March 15, 2021 and this year's exciting Camp Guides will available soon!!

Camps at the Y all share one thing: they’re about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships through the many activities that the Y provides.

YMCA of the Chesapeake Camp Registration forms are all online and will be sent via email link after you have completed your registration either online or at the Welcome Center of the Y and paid in full. Anyone that registers March 15-April 30, 2021 will receive the forms the last week of the month.

YMCA of the Chesapeake day camps are centered around improving the well-being of children. We believe in each child's individuality and intentionally focus on three areas of development: friendships, accomplishment and belonging. We work to create a safe and vibrant environment that allows children to:

  • Learn and master skills that nurture their passions, talents and potential.
  • Bond with new friends and positive staff role models to create lasting memories.
  • Know they belong so they feel welcome and free to express who they are.



VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES AND EXPERIENCES: From sports camps, to the arts, to themed day camps and more, each YMCA offers a broad variety of experiences to spark your child's interest, excitement and creativity! We offer age-appropriate enrichment activities in indoor and outdoor settings, designed to keep kids active, engaged and having fun!

WELL TRAINED AND ENERGETIC STAFF: We take your child's safety seriously. Our counselors, camp staff and lifeguards complete 30 hours of pre-camp training including CPR, First Aid, AED and Child Abuse Prevention. We conduct background checks and drug screenings on all camp staff and employees. Our counselors also learn child development best practices as well as techniques to encourage all campers to be inclusive and celebrate our differences.

COMMUNITY REPUTATION: At the Y, you're not just a member of a facility; you're part of a cause, with a shared commitment to nurture the potential of youth, improve health and well-being, give back and support our neighbors. YMCA members enjoy special pricing on programs and receive priority registration.
