Day Camp is a GO!

The West Suburban YMCA is excited to offer kids a fun, safe, and engaging day camp experience this summer. Kids need camp more than ever before this summer. They need time to play and explore outdoors, try new things, and connect with their friends - in a safe and welcoming environment.

While camp will look and feel a bit different this summer, we are committed to ensuring that our staff will create the same memorable experience for campers this summer. We are following all CDC, state, and local guidelines for operating safe and healthy summer camps at YMCA Camp Pikati and YMCA Camp Chickami.

Registration has reopened, but campers may be placed on a waitlist as our staff determine camper-counselor groups and ratios. We thank you for your patience as we make this summer work for as many families as possible!
