Until the first day of Day Camp!

Camp Jorn YMCA Day Camp


Each summer Camp Jorn offers a 10 week Day Camp program for children entering Kindergarten (Must turn 5 by September 1, 2022)-8th grade.

At Camp Jorn’s Day Camp, we are here to make your kids feel welcome.  Campers who like a bit of everything - from sports to crafts, swimming to nature, will get to experience it all including tubing! Each week is packed with a variety of activities planned around weekly themes. Campers have a choice in their activities such as crafts, large group games, archery and so much more.

You can sign your camper up for single days, or all week.  Registration opens October 15th, 2021! Dates and rates are here. Our Day Camp serves 100 children per day!

We also provide pre-school summer camp for children ages 3 months to four years. Check out the Childcare Page for more information. Please contact, Holly Prehn, Child Care Director, to register your child for our Childcare & Preschool Program.

Please read our immunization policy for 2022.

Camp Jorn YMCA’s goals are:

1. Campers will develop personal growth and higher sense of self while engaging in challenging activities that promote positive risk taking, independence, and opportunity for success

2. Campers will learn to make & maintain positive relationships with their peers and friends while building a sense of community

3. Campers will learn the YMCA core values to help them become positive well-rounded individuals:

Honesty: Campers will be taught the value of honesty while at camp, to speak and act with sincerity, truthfulness, fairness and integrity.
Respect: Campers will be taught the meaning of respect, to show consideration for self, others and the environment
Caring: Campers will be shown how to care for themselves and others, to provide compassion and understanding and to recognize the goodness in others
Responsibility: Campers will experience responsibility for themselves, their actions, their belongs, and camp property. They will be taught to do what is right, to be accountable for your behavior and obligations, to persevere to completion
Personal Growth: Campers will learn to develop in the four personal competencies - compassion, contribution, commitment and character – in order to discover and to be our best selves
