YMCA John Island Day Camp

Where real growth happens, since 1954!

YMCA John Island Camp will be offering a day camp this summer. Have fun, make friends, and try new thing at John Island Camp. Children ages 5-12 are welcome. Programming will start each morning at 8:30 at the Walkhouse Bay Rd. docks and end at 4:45 at the Walkhouse Bay Rd. docks.
