The Westfield Area Y is gearing up for another summer of fun, skill-building summer camps. The Y is a safe, thriving environment for campers to try new activities, be creative and make lasting friendships. All Westfield and Mountainside based camps are American Camping Association (ACA) accredited. The ACA is the only organization that accredits all types of camps and applies nearly 300 national standards for health and safety.
Mark your calendars for a Camp Open House scheduled on Thursday, January 16th from 5:00 – 6:30 pm in the Kellogg Room at the Main Y Facility, 220 Clark Street in Westfield. Learn about the various summer camp programs offered at the Garwood, Mountainside and Westfield locations this summer. Participants will be entered into a drawing to win a free week of traditional camp. Arts and craft activities and refreshments will be available. Members of the summer camp staff will answer any questions you may have.
Whether it’s a traditional camp filled with sports, swimming, games and crafts, or a specialty camp like cooking, dance or drama, the Westfield Area Y has a camp that’s right for you. New this summer, campers can enjoy Advanced Skills Basketball, Cross Country Clinic, Ultimate Frisbee and Skills Sharpeners!
All camps are built around the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Full and half-day traditional, specialty and sports camps are available for children ages 3-15 from June 23 - August 27, with before and after camp care available as well. Half-day complement is available for campers interested in a half-day specialty camp but want a full day program. Take advantage of the Camp Early Bird Special the month of January. Financial assistance is available.
The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Visit www.westfieldynj.org to learn more about Westfield Area Y programs.
