Discover Day Camp

The West Suburban YMCA runs two day camps all summer long for children between the ages of 3 - 15: Camp Chickami (located in Wayland, MA) and Camp Pikati located at our Newton, MA facility.

Our day camps are fun and safe communities for children and teens to explore new environments, build confidence through accomplishments, make lasting friendships and memories, and belong, so they can grow as individuals and leaders.

Support Camp at the Y!

The West Suburban YMCA is passionate about keeping our doors (and cabins and pools and lakes) open to everyone, regardless of their financial means, year round. In 2017, over 180 campers received assistance to experience the magic of summer camp, when their families might not have been able to otherwise afford it.
