Summer is a time for kids to activate their sense of adventure and expand the limits of their imagination. At Y summer day camp, every day is an opportunity for campers to make new friends and explore the endless possibilities for fun. When kids find new passions, they find their Y. Choose from ten programs at over 35 locations for preschool kiddos through high school leaders.


Camp Colman and Camp Orkila have been staples of Washington for more than 100 years. They offer kids and teens in grades 1 to 12 the chance to explore their individuality, become a part of their own community, and enjoy outdoor experiences like archery, rock climbing, and s’mores over the campfire.


Adventure is the main ingredient of Boys & Girls Outdoor Leadership Development expeditions. The natural beauty of these trips inspire youth ages 11 to 18 to be their most courageous and confident selves as they learn new skills, make lifelong friends, and run towards adventure. Choose from Beyond City Limits with two-night backpacking trips to week or multi-week expeditions on the Olympic Peninsula or in the Cascades!
