Camp Pikati | West Suburban YMCA

Day Camp at the Y

Camp Pikati

Ages 3-15

Camp Pikati, held at the West Suburban YMCA, welcomes kids between the ages of 3-15 years with a half day option for our youngest campers (ages 3 & 4). Camper groups are determined by age. We also offer a Leader-in-Training (LIT) program that provides our oldest campers a way to transition from camper to counselor. LITs assist counselors in daily operations, programming, and camper supervision.

Pikati campers enjoy weekly themes in the Traditional Camp programs along with arts and crafts, gaga ball, and archery! Or, campers can participate in a Sports Camp where they can learn skills and practices technique associated with the weeks sport. Through drills and games, our counselors help develop a strong sense of healthy competition in every camper.

All Pikati sessions include swim lessons and free swim times.
