The Williams YMCA of Avery County

Summer Camp


Let’s ALL Play summer camp activities, by inclusive design, serve an even mix of 125 children ages 6-10 with and without disabilities. Through behavior modeling and management in inclusive activities, our goal is for children with and without disabilities to realize growth in motor skills, social skills, and self-esteem and demonstrate greater empathy and understanding. Each week has a learning theme with an emphasis on wellness and healthy living activities. Daily activities include a visual or performing art project, music, and aquatics. Other activities such as active games, discussions, guest presenters - such as magicians and artists, and field trips - such as horseback riding are mixed into the schedule or may replace a daily activity.

Registration begins May 1st 2017. First day of Summer Camp is Monday, June 12th 2017. No Camp July 4th.
