Great summers start here
Sign up for camp in April to save $20/week/child all summer long!
The YMCA knows that summer is a time of discovery. Our Discovery Camp is designed to get your kids moving and making new connections in a safe and fun environment after a long year indoors.
Located throughout Buncombe and McDowell counties, YMCA Discovery Camps offer licensed childcare for school-aged campers (rising first through rising sixth graders). Your kids will have the best summer ever!
Daily activities are designed around weekly themes and meant to nurture the spirit mind and body of young campers. Arts and crafts, field games, teambuilding, local field trips, and swimming (as allowed by state health regulations) will fill their days with enriching and engaging experiences.
YMCA members save $20 per child, per week on Discovery Camp fees when they enroll by April 30.
New members who join the Y in April 2021 will pay no joining fee and save $20 per child, per week on Discovery Camp when they enroll by April 30.
