Over the past year, we’ve been so focused on what we can’t do: we can’t go to school, we can’t gather, we can’t do things the way we used to. This summer, the YMCA of Reading and Berks County invites you to look at the glass half-full and embrace a summer of endless possibilities at our YMCA Day Camps!
While it’s true that our day camps look a little bit different this year, we are committed to providing kids in grades K-6 an opportunity to have a safe camp experience that does not compromise on the fun. How will we do that, you might ask? By focusing on what we CAN do to give our kids a summer camp experience to remember! Below, we’ve listed just a few things that are making all the difference in our YMCA Summer Day Camp Programs this year…
WE CAN… BRING ALL THE FUN RIGHT TO THE Y!
This year, we’re not going on field trips– instead, we’re bringing all the fun right to us! Kids will enjoy guest speakers, special activities, and more from their camp site.
WE CAN… JUST KEEP SWIMMING!
That’s right, swimming is still a-go at summer camp! All campers will visit our Reading YMCA weekly for swimming in our indoor aquatics center — no weather dependent swim days!
WE CAN… AVOID SUMMER SLIDE!
After a year of distance learning, we’re delivering a fun and engaging way to keep up with education and avoid learning loss! At all of our camps, kids read a new, age-appropriate book each week and complete a corresponding activity!
WE CAN… KEEP OUR CAMPERS SAFE!
Our staff is committed to protecting our camper’s health and safety! At all locations, you can expect masks to be worn, a rigorous cleaning schedule to be followed, small group sizes, and daily health checks to ensure all campers are ready for an awesome day at camp!

More Child Care
The greatest compliment our YMCA families can give us is referring a friend to one of our outstanding YMCA child care centers. We are proud to share our new Refer a Friend Program which entitles you to a $50.00 credit on your child care account. Each time you recommend a friend to a YMCA Child Care location, as a result of your recommendation to other families, a $50.00 credit will be applied to your account. The credit will be received after the new enrollee has attended summer care for 60 consecutive business days.
