FAQs:

What can my child expect at Day Camp?  

Each week at Camp Castlebrook campers can expect a week full of adventure! Camp is a place where they will make new friends while participating in a variety of activities like crafts, and games, all geared toward a specific theme. Our trained staff will lead the campers in character development activities, team building games, and weekly field trips. 

What is the staff/child ratio at camp? Our camp follows a ratio of 1 staff to 10 children. During some activities and field trips the ratio is lower.

What does my camper need to bring to camp? Please label everything your child brings. A few camp necessities include lunch, water bottle, backpack, swim suit, towel, sunscreen, hat, tennis shoes, and comfy clothes.

Does the Y provide snacks? Yes, we provide a morning and afternoon snack. Please be sure to list any allergies on your enrollment form. Snack menus will be available each month.

What about swimming? Campers get the chance to swim every day at our indoor pool. Campers who wish to swim in the deeper end of the pool will be tested by YMCA lifeguards each day. Campers will wear flotation devices if they are not strong swimmers and all swimming is supervised by YMCA lifeguards and camp staff at all times. Swim lessons are available during camp hours as well.
