Discovery Day Camp

Sun Prairie

Ages 5-13

Give your child a true outdoor experience this summer as they explore all that nature has to offer. Rain or shine, campers hike, catch crayfish in our beautiful creek, build forts in their territories throughout our forest, enjoy s’mores around the campfire and create awesome art projects! Of course we’ll swim, play games, make new friends, learn new skills and work on character development, too; it’s what Y Summer Camp is all about! 

Drop-off and pick-up at Sun Prairie YMCA; children are transported daily to the Sun Prairie Lion’s Club Clubhouse for camp. The Y can transport children from summer school to camp; call 608 478 4310 for details!
