About New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps

There’s something about summer camp memories that stick with us forever. The friendships we make, the skills we learn, and the confidence we build last long after the summer ends. The New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps have provided thousands of children in our community with a camp experience they never forget.

Our camps offer a variety of experiences for children of all ages and abilities, with each camp offering safe and supervised fun provided by a caring, responsible staff. Each child gains something different at camp: making new friends, learning how to swim, self-confidence, independence, and leadership—skills that last far beyond camp. Whether it’s your child’s first camp experience through Camp Mini or the traditional summer camp fun at Camp Y-Ki each of our camps provide an environment where campers are encouraged to grow, have fun, and make those memories that will last a lifetime.
