Camps & Backyard Campouts

YMCA Camping

The Y believes all kids have great potential and deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

And while these are times that challenge us individually and as a community on many levels, Y camp provides kids with a safe, familiar, and fun-filled environment for them to explore the outdoors, build confidence, develop skills and make lasting friendships and memories, so they can grow as individuals and leaders.

Day Camps

At the Y, we look forward to continuing to provide one of our most exciting roles in the community…Summer Day Camp! As we plan and work in conjunction with local city and state leader’s, we are preparing for our first day of Summer Day Camp at our Tandy, Owasso, and Daily Family YMCA’s to begin on June 1st. Our DHS licensed camps run weekly and are open from 7 am-6 pm.  Summer Day Camp at the Y is a chance to provide your camper with the opportunities to try new things, make friends, and to grow to their fullest potential through character development and outdoor education-focused programming in a safe environment.

Summer Day Camps

Think outside, where no box is required for kids to laugh, learn, explore and grow in the outdoors, while creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Kids discover not just the wonders of camp, but the joy of exploring their talents and interests and the power of sharing their strengths and skills to benefit the group.
