The Waltham YMCA, a branch of the YMCA of Greater Boston, hosts an open house for returning and new campers on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Families can meet staff, check out the facilities, explore the different camp options available and sign up for camp on-site.
New this year is a two-week Teen Adventure Camp for grades 7 to 12 with a focus on outdoor adventures and activities.
“My goal for this program is to enable kids to challenge themselves in a new setting in order to develop their leadership skills, team work and communication,” said Brian Fendell, Teen Adventure Camp Director. “No prior outdoor experience is necessary and we provide all of the necessary outdoor gear.”
Teens will learn outdoor skills at Waltham Y for one week, and the second week takes them to New Hampshire to engage in the full outdoor camping experience.
Waltham Y offers eight weekly programs for children and teens ages 3 to 17. Extended day is provided for all camps. Activities include creating arts and crafts, exploring science and technology, daily swimming, participating in field trips, exploring nature, learning about many cultures and making new friends and memories.
Summer camp begins Monday, June 24.
