Day Camp & Preschool Camp

Temperance, MI


(6- 12 YEARS OLD)
For parents and caregivers looking to keep their children’s minds and bodies active, the Francis Family YMCA’s Day Camp program, provides youth an adventurous, active, and healthy summer. 

Camp programs provide a fun and unique experience that gives children the opportunity to explore the outdoors, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime. Camp offers achievement activities such as swimming, fishing, canoeing, archery, arts, sciences, sports, reading and hands-on activities like Y Readers that help close the gap of summer learning loss. 

Campers will learn how to be responsible and resourceful, work in groups, solve problems and make decisions that will help them grow as individuals all while having fun and feeling like they belong. We want every camper to start school telling friends that they had the best summer ever. Whether your child attends one week or the whole summer, they will have an unforgettable experience at camp. 

(Ages 3-5, Potty Trained)
Preschool Day Camp is for ages 3 yrs old and potty trained to 5 yr olds who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall. Each week your camper will be able to enjoy songs, crafts, story time, structured swim lessons, games, nature walks and other fun activities. Daily activities include: story time, swim lesson, group lunch, rest time, outdoor play and walks.
