Parent Feedback from Camp Chickami's 2020 Season

"The kids have had the best time this week...It is so good to have them outside with peers again, and for them to just be kids. Thank you for everything you have done to make this possible. I have felt completely safe sending them each morning, and they are looking forward to the rest of their weeks at Chickami!"

"My biggest thing was safety and the Y took all of my concerns away with all the communication and the protocols put in place to make sure the kids were safe."

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. 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. We follow all CDC, state, and local guidelines for operating safe and healthy summer camps at YMCA Camp Pikati and YMCA Camp Chickami. Camp may look different in 2021 than it did in 2020, but for an idea of what 2020 day camp looked like, click the links below to see our COVID-19 prevention protocols and procedures.
