Instead of spending the summer at home and indoors, the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA is encouraging parents to give their kids a chance to explore nature, grow and connect with others at camp this summer.   

YMCA campers gain new experiences, develop essential social skills and create lifelong friendships, while enjoying camp adventures along the way.

Children and teens who attend camp programs are given new responsibilities and they learn independence. As a result, they become more confident, open to trying new things and grow as individuals and as part of a group.

As a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y works to help children and teens discover their full potential by providing opportunities to learn, grow and thrive amidst caring, supportive adults.

Each summer, hundreds of parents trust their children to the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA.  With something for every child, ages 3-16, your child is sure to have a summer full of fun! Our camps offer a wide variety of sports, swimming, arts & crafts, leadership development, educational events, day trips, plus much more!

In addition to our traditional day camps, we also offer Specialty camps like acting, Dance & Gymnastics camps, as well as fitness camps. Extended care which allows for early morning drop off and late pick up is available for kids entering 1st -9th grade in the fall. 

Registration for the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA camp programs is going on now at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains facility.  Camp season runs from June 27th to August 26th.
