North Oakland Family YMCA Summer Camps 2019 – Summer fun day camps for kids ages 3-17 all summer long in Auburn Hills at North Oakland Family YMCA.
North Oakland Family YMCA Summer Day Camp, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids see what they can accomplish, learn and master skills, make new friends, and feel like they belong. Every new experience at day camp is a chance for kids to stay active, address gaps in learning when school is not in session, and have fun.
With a careful guidance of our trained staff, kids will learn core values that will last forever. They’ll explore. They’ll play. They’ll grow. And they’ll have an incredible amount of fun!
