Best Summer Ever: New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps


The New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps have provided thousands of children in the community with a camp experience they never forget.  New Canaan YMCA Summer Camps offer a variety of experiences for children of all ages and abilities, with each camp offering safe and supervised fun provided by a caring, responsible staff. Each child gains something different at our camps: making new friends, learning how to swim, self-confidence, independence, and leadership—skills that last far beyond the summer.
