St. Michael’s Speciality Camp

The Warlick Family YMCA is excited to host specialty camp at St. Michael Catholic School in Gastonia! We are very excited about being able to provide these opportunities for our campers. These camps offer a range of interests from which campers can choose one week or all summer!

Ages: Rising 1st to Rising 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.

  • Schedule: June 11 – August 24
