Elburn Summer Camp 2021
We know that kids are ready…ready for fun, ready for adventure, ready for it all. We are ready too! No one does summer like the YMCA! While what camp will look like will be different from summers past, you can count on the same safe, high quality, fun-filled program that you have come to know from the YMCA
Our Campers will have a summer to remember as the memories and friends that are made will last a lifetime! No two days are the same, and there is never a dull moment. Campers will spend fun-filled days doing group activities, creative art experiences, games, sports, and exploration, as well as an exciting weekly field trip that ties into our weekly themes. Through directed games and skill-building activities, campers will work on improving their social and emotional skills in a supportive and safe environment.

Campers and their parents will meet camp counselors, visit with old and new friends, see our camp space, pick up their camp t-shirt, and weekly schedules. Camp Leadership will also be on hand to answer any questions.
Professionally trained and enthusiastic staff are the key ingredient to a positive camp experience. Our staff team is selected based on their skills, maturity, creativity, and sensitivity to the needs of our camp participants.
Many of our staff work during the school year in our before and after-school programs and are familiar faces to the children. Our staff participates in a minimum of 40 hours of training prior to the beginning of camp, so you can rest assured that your child’s counselor will be a caring and positive role model. Many of our camp staff are experienced, returning staff that are 18 or older, and are working on degrees in education, psychology, family or social services.
All camp staff are:
– Carefully selected and screened
– Put through State and National extensive background check
– CPR & First Aid Certified
– DCFS-Mandated Reporters
– Child Abuse Prevention Trained
– Child Development, Group and Behavioral Management Trained
– Risk Management and Emergency Preparedness
– Aquatics & Swim Safety Trained

– And so much more!
