Summer Camp

Summer Camp at Gaston County Family YMCA

Camp, 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 multiple camp locations throughout the county during the summer weeks following the Gaston County Schools calendar.

Please see the information and resources below to prepare yourself and your child for the best summer ever!

We know we have the best staff in town. Our team is as diverse as our children and is comprised of men and women who are content experts and professionals in their fields. Our staff team is made up of college students, working professionals, and exceptional teens. Our staff undergo extensive training, are back-ground checked and participate in regular risk management drills.

Register online or in person at your local Membership Desk. Each week of camp requires a non-refundable $10 deposit per child being registered. Spaces are held on a first come-first served basis. (Spaces are limited.) Registration closes the Monday PRIOR TO each week of camp.

Adding a week or an “add-on” session
Did your camper have so much fun that you want to add another week?  Or perhaps you want to enroll them in one of our day camp swim lesson add-ons? You can register on-line here, or stop by the front desk so that one of our membership staff can help get your child registered.  

Cancellations require written notice 1 full week (7 days) prior to the start of that week or session, and are processed by our business office staff only. If you need to cancel your registration in a program or in a week of camp, stop by the front desk, or send an email to the person who represents your location below. 

**Please include child’s full name and birth date, session you are cancelling, and reason for cancellation

If your cancellation request is made within the 7 day window, or if you don’t cancel prior to the start of the session, you will be responsible for the full  payment.
