Living and Learning Through Day Camp
If you don’t want to hear that dreaded refrain “I’m bored” coming from your children’s lips this summer, consider enrolling them in Wapsie’s Day Camp for youth entering 1st-8th grade.
YMCA Camp Wapsie offers Day Camp programs with a variety of outdoor activities similar to those at Resident Camp. Day Camp provides a positive social experience with similar-aged youth. Then campers return home in the evening for that all important family time and evening activities.
Day camp includes a Thursday overnight at Wapsie!
Day Troopers Camp
(1st Grade - 4th Grade)
Day Troopers spend days at Camp Wapsie with a mid-week special trip to Pinicon Ridge Park in Central City. They’ll visit the elk, playground & trails at the park. A highlight is the Thursday overnight stay at Wapsie. Families need only send one bag lunch for the Wednesday off-site trip to Pinicon Ridge Park. Wapsie will provide the other meals while they are at Camp.
Day Trekkers Camp
(5th Grade - 8th Grade)
Day Trekkers enjoy camp activities at Wapsie during the day, learning freedom and independence as they work with their counselors to create their own schedule which can include: climbing the tower, horseback riding, and participating in organized camp activities such as Special Days, and Mission Impossible. All meals are included and Trekkers enjoy a Thursday night overnight stay!
