Discovery Day Camp-Lussier Family East YMCA

YMCA Dane County

Join us for one week or an entire summer of fun! We focus on learning, exploring and growing through fun and educational activities. We will be doing a variety of activities ranging from arts and crafts, cooking, literacy, science, swimming and we will be going on a fun field trip weekly!

Week 1 | June 17-21 Animal Kingdom

Learn about the fascinating creatures that inhabit our world and the impact that they can have on the circle of life. Hakuna matata!

Week 2 | June 24-28 Dragon Training

Beware as we journey through the magical, mystical world of dragons! We’ll discover the stories and adaptations of these mythical beasts all week long.

Week 3 | July 1-5 (No Camp July 4) STEAM-work

Our campers won’t just study Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics; we’ll innovate and create. This will be a very hands-on week that’s geared toward inspiration and development. 

Week 4 | July 8-12 Water, Water Everywhere

Watch as we beat the summer heat with wet, wild and wacky games! Campers will enjoy JackSplash, the East Y’s outdoor splash park, swimming, water relays, slip-and-slides and more.

Week 5 | July 15-19 Junior Chefs

Remember: We’re here for the food! This week, we’ll tap into our inner chef as we indulge in delicious dishes, learn about food groups, create recipes and make some of our own snacks.

Week 6 | July 22-26 Roll Out the Red Carpet

Lights! Camera! Action! Campers will be in the spotlight as we portray musicians, actors, athletes and artists. A talent show will end our week because the show must go on!

Week 7 | July 29- August 2 Brain Games

Get your thinking caps on! Imagination, experimentation and curiosity rule this week as we invent new games and test our creations with other groups. 

Week 8 | August 5-9 Amazing Avengers

We’ll unlock our super powers during an adventure-filled week and discover the hero that’s inside all of us.

Week 9 | August 12-16 Where in the World?

Campers will experience new cultures and customs through art, food, sports, games and more as we find adventure across 
the globe. 

Week 10 | August 19-23 Game On!

It’s a challenge. Are you ready? In our closing week, campers are invited to give everything one more try. We’ll revisit our favorite activities from the summer.
