Summer Day Camp - 2023


Summer Day Camp enrollment numbers will be closely monitored, to ensure we meet our new license capacity number. Parents are encouraged to download and print out initial enrollment documents at the bottom under the enrollment section by clicking Download Enrollment Packet below.

Our Summer Day Camp will begin Tuesday, May 30th and will conclude August 17, 2023. Our camp hours are Monday thru Friday 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Parent check in/out entrance is located at the EAST door of the YMCA. Check-in time is 7:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. We ask that this is followed daily to ensure your health protocols are followed. For example: all authorized adult to check-in/check-out are required to follow the YMCA's COVID related policy.

Please check-in children during the scheduled check-in time to minimize any disruption with the busing schedule. Buses will depart from the YMCA no later than 7:40 a.m. Children will NOT be allowed alternate drop-off times without prior approval from program Director/Coordinator and given 48 hour prior notice. Parents can email We ask that these protocols are strictly followed due to safety concerns. We want an accurate count of children participating in camp at all times. We ask that these guidelines are followed for the health and safety of our staff.

Children in our summer day camp participate in activities at the Joplin Family Y location and are also transported within the community for other activities. For example: meal sites, local library, public parks, and public pools. Parents are notified within 48 hours of any special events/activities that would require children to be transported more than 15 miles from the Joplin Family Y location.
