The New Canaan YMCA’s Camp Y-Ki has been in full swing in this summer at Kiwanis Park.
Campers participate in swimming, archery, arts and crafts, sports, nature exploration, outdoor adventure and special events.
A priority in all Y programming is youth development, which extends to its summer camps. Activities aim to help campers build self-esteem and confidence, independence and responsibility. The Y also provides financial assistance to children who otherwise might not be able to attend summer camp. The Y provides the financial aid through support it receives during its Annual Campaign.
This summer the Counselors-in-Training are running a “Diaper Drive” for Person-to-Person.
