Camp Yomawha (YM&YWHA of Washington Heights and Inwood)
The Y’s day camp, Camp Yomawha, implements the values and high-quality programming your child is used to seeing every day. The Camp Yomawha staff works all year long to develop a curriculum where campers are able to stay active, develop skills, and explore new passions. Instructional & recreational swimming, sports and art-intensive programming, meaningful community service projects, field trips and more are sure to give your child an unforgettable summer experience at an affordable price.
In addition to day camp, Camp Yomawha hosts 2 other special programs: Camp Yomawha Xtra and Teen Travel Camp.
At Camp Yomawah Xtra, campers spend a week immersed in intensive tracks or “neighborhoods:” Play, Create, Grow, Explore, or Discover. During this week, campers develop new skills and appreciations for activities they are passionate about.
Teen Travel Camp is a unique experience for students who have completed 6th-9th grade. The program is divided into 2 aspects: meaningful community service and inspirational trips, both day-trips and overnight-trips. Teens spend the summer with their peers in an environment conducive to creating long-lasting relationships, building community leadership qualities, and exploring the greater New York area. Teen Travel camp is divided into four two-week sessions, each with a unique overnight experience. This year, our teens in session 2 will be traveling to Disney World, Orlando! And we are excited to tell you that our very own after school group leader Gaby Marantz will be lead staff on this amazing summer program.
Don’t let your child miss out on this incredible opportunity this summer.
