Traditional Camp Villages:

MetroWest YMCA Traditional Day Camps focus on our four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Each day campers participate in activities which are broad-based, co-ed, age-appropriate, and fun for all! Fun-filled activities promote physical development, social interaction, personal growth, and plenty of imagination! Traditional Camps have instructional swim Monday-Thursday and recreational swim Monday-Friday, other activities include archery, boating, low/high ropes, nature exploration, camp games, and arts and crafts.

Our traditional camps are divided into three units.

  • Juniors:  Age 3-Entering grade 2
  • Middlers: Entering grades 3-5
  • ​Seniors: Entering grades 6-10


Specialty Camps (offered within units): 

MetroWest YMCA Specialty Camps are designed to give campers a unique experience in a specific area of interest. Campers spend the majority of their day involved in projects, hands-on activities, and games that broaden their understanding and knowledge of the theme of their specialty camp. Each day specialty campers participate in recreational swim and one traditional camp activity, such as archery, boating, or nature.
