The Darien YMCA Summer Camp is a wonderful opportunity for children ages 3 to 13, with all abilities, to experience a wide range of activities.

We offer an environment where campers will build lasting memories and friendships. The Darien YMCA Summer Camp is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We help children grow and have fun through exploration, building self-confidence and independence, learning core values, developing life skills and most importantly being active.
