The Summer of a Lifetime.

          The Y’s camping programs provide a safe, positive environment that fosters opportunities for young people to discover who they are and what they can achieve. With values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility as our guide, we work with you every day to help your children have fun while realizing their potential.  With the Y, you can be assured that whatever activity your child engages in will:

  • Encourage Teamwork and Cooperation
  • Promote Trust
  • Enhance Problem Solving Skills
  • Encourage and Develop Creative Thinking
  • Promote Self Empowerment
  • Enhance Self Confidence and Self Worth
  • Develop Communication Skills
  • Provide a Fun and Memorable Experience

             The Y is committed to youth development.  No place is this seen more than in our camping programs.  The Y offers a wide variety of Summer Camping experiences, all are uniquely designed to meet your needs and provide your children with opportunities to learn, grow and thrive.

             Our Summer Day Camps and Municipal Recreation Programs provide a local option for working parents allowing children to discover the benefits of summer camping in their own backyards.  The Y currently operates Summer Day Camp at the Genesee and Orleans County Branches. For over 100 years the GLOW YMCA has made good on its promise to provide children with the “summer of a lifetime”.
