Say Hello to Summer!
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 Gaston County Family YMCA offers six camp locations throughout the county during the 11-week summer. Please see the information below to find that camp that best suits your family.
