New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps

Where our community’s kids have their best summer ever

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, or a traditional outdoor summer camp experience at Camp Y-Ki, or discovering their love for Artistic Swimming, 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.

New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps have provided thousands of children in our community with a camp experience they never forget. Our camps offer a variety of experiences for children of all ages and abilities, with each camp offering safe and supervised fun provided by a caring, responsible staff.

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 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.

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.

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.
