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 has three different locations to choose from:
Greensburg YMCA: 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): will incorporate experiments, outdoor play, group games, character development, and arts and crafts all based on a weekly theme. Campers will swim once a week at the Greensburg YMCA and enjoy weekly field trips.
Unity Township: offers kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking, theme related crafts, weekly swimming at the Greensburg YMCA, character development and weekly field trips.
Do you have a child that eats, sleeps and breathes sports? The Greensburg YMCA is the answer for all your sport camp needs! Our Sports Camps features drills and skill development, daily swimming, sport specific games, a focus on positive sportsmanship, character development and weekly field trips.
Adventure Camp and Sports Camp children from the Greensburg YMCA location will have the opportunity to swim up to four times a week. Adventure Camp children from the Unity Township and West Hempfield Elementary locations will be bussed once a week to the Greensburg YMCA for swim. With the closure of the Veteran’s Memorial Pool this summer for repairs, we are looking at other outdoor pool options; at a minimum there will always be indoor swimming for all groups at the Greensburg YMCA.

OUR CAMP TEAM:
The success of any camp is a direct reflection of the quality of the camp counselors and coaches. Our individuals are selected based on their experience, education, attitude and desire to work with children. Each counselor and coach receives training in First Aid, CPR/AED, YMCA Child Abuse Prevention, Mandated Reporter, Character Development and Water Safety.
Counselors follow positive reinforcement guidelines and focus on the use of the Character Development Values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility.
In the event of inclement weather please refer to our Inclement Weather Policy. The most effective form of communication in regards to inclement weather is through Remind text alerts. Please follow the link below to the instructions.
All participants in Adventure Camp and Sports Camp will be tested to determine their swimming ability prior to entering the pool. This testing includes swimming crawl stroke with rotary breathing for 40 feet, treading water for 60 seconds in the deep end, and swimming on their back for 40 feet. Participants that fail the test will be required to swim in the shallow end only. This test will be performed at the YMCA Pool.
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).
