Adventure Camp

Daily Reminders

Is your child ready for an action-packed, fun-filled summer? The Greensburg YMCA is the answer for all your day camp needs! Our Adventure Camp  at the Greensburg YMCA 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. The 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 $15.00 processing fee.  For example, if your child is starting camp the week of June 6, we would need the completed registration packet and payment for that week by May 30. For Adventure Camp you have the choice of the Greensburg YMCA location or the Unity Township location.

The youngest campers (5 years of age) must have completed Kindergarten to participate in Adventure Camp or Sports Camp.  Please refer our Early Childhood Learning Center page if your child has not yet completed Kindergarten.

WEEKLY FIELD TRIPS:

Keystone State Park, Ohio Pyle, The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, Pittsburgh Pirates game, and Washington Wild Things game are some possible field trips we may enjoy throughout the summer. Most of our field trips are made possible thanks to our participation in the Tickets for Kids, a non-profit organization committed to helping the youth in our area experience various cultural events and locations in the city of Pittsburgh and surrounding area.
*Field trip dates are subject to change

 

EXCURSIONS:

Our campers will enjoy a variety of local excursions throughout Greensburg such as Veteran’s Memorial Pool at Lynch Field, The Greensburg-Hempfield Library, St. Clair Park and The Palace Theatre.

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.
