Best Summer Ever – Stay Tuned for Summer 2020!

Hopewell Valley YMCA’s Traditional Day Camp – Grades Entering K-8th

Hopewell Valley YMCA Camp’s goal is for campers to have fun and build friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. Campers will get to grow individually and as a team through our extensive hands on curriculum. Campers will be placed in groups based on age and participate in specialty activities such as: arts & crafts, games, sports and science. ALL campers receive instructional and recreational swimming during the week as well as a daily snack and weekly trips. Each weekly trip and daily activities are selected to provide campers with a true camp experience, and the best summer ever.
