Summer Adventure Day Camp at Heritage

While at Summer Adventure Day Camp, your child will engage in a wide variety of activities, including physical recreation, computer time, reading time and art, music and drama. They will have fun in the sun with water kickball and mini golf, but they will also visit Prairie State Park and participate in exciting science projects.

This seamless blend of summer fun and educational excursions helps fight the “summer slide” while also giving your child a new adventure to look forward to each and every day. 

Every Summer Adventure Day Camp experience includes:

  • A Wide Variety of Activities, Including Physical Recreation, Reading Time and Art, Music and Drama
  • Christian Values-Based Programs to Help Children Learn Essential Social, Physical and Intellectual Lessons
  • 1:16 Camper to Counselor Ratio 
  • State-Licensed Facility
  • CPR-Certified Staff Who Each Receive 12 Hours of Continuing Education Each Year
  • Nutritious Meals and Snacks that meet the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Standards Set Forth by the CDC

Enthusiastic, Caring Staff

The YMCA is dedicated to the care, education, safety and well-being of all children in our programs. Our staff receive ongoing training in support areas such as first aid and CPR, behavior guidance, working with specific age groups, curriculum and learning environments. All of our counselors have a passion for educating young children and are privileged to partner with your family in the education of your child.

Meals and Snacks

The YMCA Heritage Youth Development Center partners with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services’ Summer Food Service Program to ensure that your child receives healthy, balanced meals and snacks while in our care. We also are in compliance with the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity standards set forth by CDC and adopted by the national YMCA.
