(CNS Local Life): Registration for the annual YMCA summer day camp is now open, with the programme running from Tuesday, 2 July to Friday, 23 August, making it one of the only camps on island spanning the entire eight weeks of summer break. Camps are spread across three locations – Field of Dreams (FOD), Camana Bay Sports Complex (CBSC) and the Youth Centre at the Cayman Islands Baptist Church (CIBC) in Savannah.

Additional days of camp have recently been added due to the number of schools breaking early for the summer. Families can now register for Y Fun Days offered Wednesday-Friday, 26-28 June at the Field of Dreams.

“The YMCA is excited to make it a ‘summer to remember’ for families who are seeking a safe environment for their children to stay active, make new friends and have fun,” Jenny Stuesser who oversees the day camp programme, said in a press release. 

“Our caring, well-trained staff members are dedicated to providing new, exciting and character-building experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. We are all looking forward to a fun and impactful summer.”

Families can choose from six unique camp experiences, including junior chef, adventure and teen challenge, which are open to varying age groups, she added. “Whether they’re problem-solving on the ropes course or developing their swim skills at the pool, kids will be a part of a camp experience that is founded on the Y character development programme, which integrates the values of honesty, caring, respect, responsibility and faith into all we do,” Stuesser said.

New this year is a STEM-focused (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) Discovery Camp, which will include activities such as science experiments, discovery with drones, and LEGO engineering. This programme is open to youngsters ages 8 to 12 and takes place at the CIBC Youth Centre in Savannah.
