Camp Hiawatha is the coolest place to be this summer!

GET READY FOR A GREAT SUMMER - June 17 - August 23

Our Camp Hiawatha consists of a balanced day of enriching childhood skills and fun through activities such as outdoor play, water games, arts & crafts, and science activities.

Register for a week or all summer long. Summer camp is where your child can make new friends, learn and discover, get creative and have fun trying new things in a safe and nurturing environment!

  • YMCA Camp Hiawatha is open to all children ages 6 to 8 years old and is held at the YMCA; the day is 9:00 am-4:00 pm with early and after care options available from 6:30 am-5:30 pm
  • A variety of activities will be provided throughout the camp season which consist of outdoor games, weekly safe swim instruction in our indoor pool, outdoor water play, reading time, bike and scooter riding, non-elimination games through the CATCH curriculum, as well as traditional day camp arts & crafts.
  • Healthy Breakfast and Lunch served to all campers
  • Spikeball: Spikeball is a new sport that's sweeping the nation. It is described as a combination of volleyball and four-square. It is played 2 vs 2, with a taut hula hoop sized Spikeball net placed between the teams.  They have up to three hits between them (just like Volleyball) to control the ball and bounce it back off the net.
