Record numbers expected at 2014 YMCA Summer Camps

The Y offers summer camps to families throughout the area at camps located in Bethel, Brookfield and Danbury. 

Camp Greenknoll (Brookfield) welcomes campers ages 3-15 years and offers several programs including Teen Adventurers for older campers, which amplifies the traditional camp day and brings fun to a new level with discovery-based learning that builds leadership skills. The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program is designed for older campers who, supervised by a coordinator, will explore & learn how to become a counselor and leader. Camp Greenknoll also offers a ropes course that allows campers to work on team-building, trust, and camaraderie. Camp Greenknoll offers extended care in the morning and afternoon. 

Summer Club at Grassy Plain (Bethel) and Summer Club at Greenknoll (Brookfield) are open to children ages 5-12 and offer a summer rich in fun, fitness, enrichment and excitement. Summer Club programs offer a balance between outdoor and indoor activities combined with field trips, instructional and recreational swim, sports, team-building, crafts, and much more.  Both Summer Clubs offer full day programs; the Summer Club at Grassy Plain is now offering half-day specialty club options as well.

ESCAPE to the Arts Summer Program (Danbury) is for ages 3-12 and enables children to explore creativity, learn artistic technique, discover the value of teamwork, and build self-esteem. The goal is to provide a fun summer learning experience through the arts with a variety of week-long programs. This year, ESCAPE will continue to offer the full-day program in conjunction with Camp Greenknoll. Half-day programs include both thematic and specialty art weeks.
