Cannon Memorial YMCA offers summer camps

Cannon Memorialís three Y branches, West Cabarrus, Kannapolis and Harrisburg, offer children the opportunity to experience hands-on indoor and outdoor camp fun, keep kids active and excited rather than spending too much time watching TV and playing video games. They will take part in a variety of summer activities with their friends during each camp session.
Weekly themes guide the activities like arts and crafts, nature activities, games, contests and team building games. The themes and activities will vary by branch and are subject to change.
All three camps run from June 13 through Aug. 15. The West Cabarrus branch welcomes children ages 3-17. The Kannapolis branch provides care for rising first- through rising eighth-graders, and the Harrisburg branch serves children ages 5-13. Both Harrisburg and West Cabarrus camps run from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., while Kannapolis runs from 6:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Weekly field trips are taken, and are included in the cost of camp. Campers will visit places like Discovery Place, Lazy 5 Ranch, Blue Water, the skating rink and more.
Registration for these camps is under way for members of the YMCA and begins March 21 for program members. The free registration period goes on until April 24.
Cannon Memorial YMCA is one of the area camps that welcomes children who have moderate to intensive special needs. Children with these unique needs take part in all traditional camp activities. When necessary, staff are able to transition children to activities that are tailored to their special needs. For more information speak with one of our camp directors.
