One of the things the YMCA is known for is its quality summer camps. To learn more about the variety of YMCA camps in South Jersey, the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties is hosting Summer Camp Open Houses starting this weekend.
The first open house will be at the Burlington Riverfront location, 302 Commerce Square Blvd., from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The Mt. Laurel location, 59 Centerton Rd., will host an open house on Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Camps in the area include traditional day camps, sports specialty camps, blast camps, a teen travel camp and a half-day kindercamp, as well as a camp for special needs children and another for kids with cancer and their siblings. The Y also has two overnight camps- one for boys, one for girls- in the area.
Kids entering Grade 10 can learn the leadership skills they’ll need to be camp counselors in the Counselor-In-Training program.
At the open houses, parents and potential campers can meet camp directors and campers to get more information on what each camp has to offer. There will also be exclusive discounts for those attending the open houses.
Future open houses are Feb. 20 at the Berlin Borough Community Center from 6 to 8 p.m., March 10 at the Mt. Laurel Y from 10 a.m. to noon or at the Burlington Riverfront Y from 2 to 4 p.m., March 29 at the Berlin Borough Community Center from 6 to 8 p.m., April 22 at the Burlington Riverfront Y from 10 a.m. to noon or at the Mt.
