Say HELLO SUMMER at the Hamilton Area YMCA Sawmill Branch Summer Camp!
Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
Our camp curriculum promotes making new friends, teamwork, building self-esteem, creativity and includes educational components! We offer over 30 different camp options in the areas of arts, sciences, sports, travel, and specialty and traditional camping! At the Hamilton Area YMCA Sawmill Branch, we combine hit activities like daily swimming in our beautiful outdoor pool with a 100 foot waterslide and Color Wars with goal setting, friend-making, and group dynamics in a fun, controlled environment. With so much variety, we are sure we are the right summer camp for your family.
Dedicated summer staff return to Sawmill year after year. Our staff of high school, college students and educators is committed to helping young people develop into caring, responsible citizens. Staff maintain a 1:10 counselor to camper ratio while participating in the adventures of camp with their campers. Every member of our staff team receives over 25 hours of pre-camp training and our senior counselors and unit leaders are CPR and First Aid certified. We also have a full time nurse on staff during the camp season.
We’re affordable. We’re flexible – register for as little as one week or as many as 10, take advantage of pre and/or post camp hours, utilize our convenient transportation options – it’s up to you! Create the camp schedule that works best for you and your family. We can’t wait for your camper to join us this summer!
