Summer Day Camp


Only the Brainerd Y has the area’s premier summer day camp focused on activity and healthy living for youth!

There’s no reason to be bored this summer, there’s plenty to do at the YMCA Summer Adventure camp! Plan to attend one or all thirteen weeks of camp. Each week will be a different adventure. Youth learn to be honest and care, to respect, to be responsible for themselves and the environment. These are the values that make the YMCA Summer Adventure camp different and extraordinary. Join us for the adventure – create a lifetime of memories!

Camp Hours 7:30 am – 6 p.m.


Our YMCA Summer Daycamp program has once again been invited to participate in the “Summer lunch” program with ISD 181.  This program allows our campers to receive free lunches if they choose everyday throughout the summer.  Lunch will be served at Washington school each day around 11:45 (This program does not include field trip days.)
