Central YMCA – Camp Chi Rho

Ages: Rising: 1st-8th Grade

Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

The Central YMCA Summer Day Camp is a North Carolina Licensed program.
