Register for Camp

Charles River YMCA camps and summer programs are among nearly two dozen Y experiences offered around the Boston metro area, ensuring kids have a fun and exciting summer!

At the Y, kids spend the day creating arts and crafts, exploring science and technology, swimming, participating in field trips, exploring nature, learning about our many cultures and making new friends and memories. Summer learning, including literacy activities, is also part of the Y summer experience.


$25 deposits are due at the time of registration.

The deadline to register for camp is the Thursday prior to the session start date.
