SUMMER-Cannon Memorial Y camps
The three Y branches, West Cabarrus, Kannapolis and Harrisburg, offer children the opportunity to experience hands-on indoor and outdoor camp fun, keeping kids active and excited rather than spending too much time watching TV and playing video games. They will enjoy a variety of summer activities with their friends during each camp session.
Weekly themes create an atmosphere of fun and learning at the same time. The themes guide the weekly activities like arts and crafts, nature activities, games, contests and team building games. Please note that 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 now included in the cost of camp. Campers will visit places like Discovery Place, Lazy 5 Ranch, Blue Water, the skating rink and more.
Cannon Memorial YMCA is one of the few 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.
