Adventure Camp

Daily Reminders

Is your child ready for an action-packed, fun-filled summer? We have three (3) Adventure Camp locations to meet your day camp needs!

Greensburg Y Location: Offers a more traditional camp feel with outdoor activities, daily swimming, local excursions, theme related crafts, educational projects, character development and weekly field trips.  

West Hempfield Elementary (WHE) location:  Will incorporate experiments, outdoor play, group games, and arts and crafts all based on the weekly theme.  Campers will swim once a week at Lynch Field and enjoy weekly field trips.

Unity Township location:  Offers kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking, theme related crafts, weekly swimming, character development and weekly field trips.

 

Adventure Camp registration must be completed one week prior to the week of attendance to avoid a $25.00 Late Enrollment Fee.  For example, if your child is starting camp the week of June 5, we would need the completed enrollment packet and payment for that week by May 27.

For Adventure Camp you have the choice of the Greensburg YMCA, West Hempfield (WHE) or Unity Township locations.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

The Greensburg YMCA strives to never turn any child away due to the families’ inability to pay for programming. With that in mind we will accept two forms of assistance in defraying the costs of camp. One way is through the YMCA Annual Support Campaign. The YMCA is able to grant scholarships to families in need due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals who donate monies to the campaign.  We encourage those who may not be able to afford camp services on their own to complete a Financial Assistance Application and submit it to the Welcome Center of the YMCA. Please allow up to four weeks for processing.  Additionally both Adventure Camp and Sports Camp held at the Greensburg YMCA location accept payment from Child Care Information Services (CCIS).  The Unity Township and West Hempfield (WHE) camp locations do not accept CCIS (status pending), but does accept YMCA Financial Assistance. Families should contact CCIS of Westmoreland County to inquire if they are qualified (724-836-4580).

UNITY TOWNSHIP DETAILS:

The Adventure Camp themes will be the same for the Unity Township location as well as the Greensburg YMCA location; however, each site will create activities within that theme relevant to their specific camp location. At Unity Township campers will participate in fishing, canoeing, kayaking, water play/wading and nature walks due to their camp sites features. They will enjoy swimming at the Veteran’s Memorial Pool at Lynch Field once a week and if the weather is uncooperative, we will make arrangements for them to swim at the indoor pools of the Greensburg YMCA instead. Additionally, the Unity Township campers will go on weekly field trips the same day as the Greensburg YMCA camp—so field trip day will be a camp wide adventure.

If your child is enrolled in the Greater Latrobe School district then your camp pricing will be the Y member price. Please be prepared at the time of registration to show proof of this requirement.

 

WEST HEMPFIELD (WHE) DETAILS:

The Adventure Camp themes will be the same for the West Hempfiled (WHE)location as well as the Greensburg YMCA location and the Unity Township location; however, each site will create activities within that theme relevant to their specific camp location. At West Hempfield the campers will enjoy playground time, gross motor time on the ball fields, arts and crafts, and science experiments. They will enjoy swimming at the Veteran’s Memorial Pool at Lynch Field once a week and if the weather is uncooperative, we will make arrangements for them to swim at the indoor pools of the Greensburg YMCA instead. Additionally, the West Hempfield campers will go on weekly field trips the same day as the Greensburg YMCA camp & Unity Township camp—so field trip day will be a camp wide adventure!
