Is your child ready for the BEST SUMMER EVER?

At Grassy Plain Summer Club, summer is the time for ADVENTURE, EXPLORATION and FUN! Our FABulous program centers on three areas proven to impact kids’ development: Friendship, Accomplishment and Belonging.

Our highly trained staff helps campers’ ages 5-12 realize that the Y is a place where they belong and can be themselves while trying new things, building new skills and making new friends. Campers are encouraged to pursue their interests through daily activities and theme weeks culminating with: an in-house special enrichment program or an inflatable amusement such as the ever-popular 18’ water slide. There are opportunities to connect with nature and spend time outside being physically active participating in experiences that influence lifelong healthy habits and also opportunities to keep skills fresh all summer long with fun, engaging literacy and math activities. There are opportunities to foster campers’ creative abilities such as Art, Drama and Writing and ones to inspire wonder and ignite creativity through weekly STEAM projects. But most importantly, there are opportunities to reconnect with the simple joys of being a kid: Swimming, Laughing, Singing, Dancing, Crafting, Discovering, Swinging, Sliding, Hiking, Playing and more!

At Grassy Plain Summer Club, the recreational and educational activities offered daily nurture the potential in every camper, building self–esteem, leadership skills, lasting friendships and treasured memories. Be a part of our community! Sign up for one week or all of them; either way your child will have THE BEST SUMMER EVER!
