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.

Traditional Day Camp

Our three summer camps - Camp Chickami, Camp Pikati and Camp Frank A. Day - comprise our largest youth development programming. Children and teenagers from three to fifteen years old spend their summers with us swimming, boating, playing, and creating. Even more, they build confidence and independence, try new things, and engage in unique communities that foster lifelong friendships.

Donations to our camps’ Annual Campaigns enable children from all economic backgrounds to experience the special magic of summer camp. Thanks to the generosity of our community of donors, this summer (2018) we distributed over $152,000 to 141 campers.
