Summer Camp

BEST SUMMER EVER!

Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

The Gaston County Family YMCA offers five camp locations throughout the county during the 10-week summer following the Gaston County Schools calendar. Please see the information below to find that camp that best suits your family.
