New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps

Where our community’s kids have their best summer ever

New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps have provided thousands of children in our community with a camp experience they never forget.

There’s something about summer camp memories—the friendships we make, the skills we learn, and the confidence we build stay with us forever. The New Canaan YMCA’s summer camps offer a variety of experiences for children of all ages and abilities. Whether your child is having their first camp experience at Camp Mini, a traditional outdoor summer camp experience at Camp Y-Ki, discovering their love for Artistic Swimming, or honing skills for a sport they are passionate about at Basketball Camp, they will be encouraged to grow, have fun, and make memories. Each camp offers safe and supervised fun provided by a caring, responsible staff, and each child gains something different—new friends, learning to swim, self-confidence, independence, and leadership—all skills that last a lifetime.

Camp Mini

Your child’s first summer camp experience is a special one. Held at our Y, Camp Mini provides a safe and comfortable camp experience for children to play, grow, and make friends.

Camp Y-Ki

Offering a traditional outdoor camp experience, Camp Y-Ki is the place for your child to spend the summer making new friends, trying new things, and growing as an individual.

Leaders-In-Training (L.I.T.)

Our Leaders-In-Training (L.I.T.) program is designed to teach our oldest campers the importance of responsibility, empathy, and working with others while having fun at camp.

Counselor-in-Training (C.I.T.)

Our Counselor-In-Training (C.I.T.) program offers teens the opportunity gain leadership skills while working with children. C.I.T.s help to bridge the gap between campers and counselors, as they learn to become positive role models.

Artistic Swimming Camp

Artistic swimming is the perfect combination of dance, gymnastics, music, and swimming! Artistic Swimming Camp introduces your child to the sport while enhancing their flexibility, endurance, and overall comfort in the water.

Basketball Camp

Spend your summer developing and honing your all-around basketball skills with individual and team drills, games, and more that help kids stay active while having fun.

YSN Summer Camps

The Y offers campers with varying limitations the opportunity to participate in a traditional camp experience at our two full-day camps; in addition to Camp Jam, an inclusive camp experience designed for teens and young adults with special needs.
