YWCA Camp Adventures Available, Enrolling Now

POTTSTOWN PA – Camp Adventures, an annual nine-week full-day summer camp for boys and girls ages 4-12 hosted annually by the YWCA Tri-County Area, is scheduled for June 21 through Aug. 20 (2021) at Fellowship Farm on North Sanatoga Road in Lower Pottsgrove, the agency announced. Camp hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with pick-ups and drop-offs at YWCA, 315 King Street.

A limited number of openings remain available, the Y said Monday (June 7). Applications can be submitted online, here.

Campers will explore the outdoors on the farm’s 126 acres of woods, fields, and pond. They’ll participate in games, visual and performing arts, team and individual sports, swim instruction, and free time in the pool.

The program is intended to encourage campers’ curiosity, team-building, learning, and creativity. It also promotes healthy lifestyle choices, independence, self-awareness, and confidence:

  • STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) exploration components include activities that will boost their understanding of the environment and support opportunities for hands on experiments.
  • Camp Adventures is committed to ensuring all children can safely respond to threatening situations around water. Each day, children will spend time in the pool in both swim instruction and recreational play, learning and practicing water safety, kicking and floating, and swimming.
  • Campers will have opportunities to explore their imaginative skills through visual and performing arts activities. They will create their own masterpieces, both individually and in small and larger groups.

Camp tuition costs $200 per week. Early Learning Resource Center child care subsidies are accepted. Campers will receive two free camp T-shirts, and daily lunches and snacks prepared in the YWCA Dignity Kitchen. For more information, call 610-323-1888.
