Potential Blooms at YMCA Preschool Day Camp

By YMCA Greater Charlotte May 30, 2019

Did you know that there’s a reason why toddlers and preschoolers love to play? Your little one’s boundless energy and hunger for fun and adventure is their natural way of learning — kids use play to discover more about themselves, others and the world around them. 

Day Camp at the Y designs play-based activities to focus your child’s curiosity to target teachable moments that help them reach their potential.

Kids Grow Physically at Camp

Learning isn’t only a mental exercise, improving major movements take practice too! Whether they’re gaining flexibility and balance in gymnastics, learning to glide through water while swimming, developing coordination playing sports or simply running and being silly playing camp games, your camper will use their energy to become more comfortable with many different types of movements. By cooking, preparing simple snacks and creating their very own works of art, campers also improve their fine motor skills as well!

Kids Become More Social at Camp

The Y’s day camps are filled with camp games and activities that encourage your child to collaborate and communicate with other children. They learn the value of asking for help, assisting others, sharing and teamwork. 

Kids Get Creative at Camp

Campers get to expand their imaginations as they are introduced to the arts. Whether they glue, paint and color a cool craft, sing their favorite songs, hear a new story or play dress-up as their favorite character or superhero, preschoolers and toddlers have limitless opportunities to create at camp.

Find a Preschool Camp Your Child Will Love
