Summer Day Camp at the Westfield Area Y

The Y provides a welcoming environment for campers to express themselves, try new activities, learn new skills, be creative, make lasting friendships, and have a blast!

From one week to the whole summer, we are happy to offer a variety of camp experiences to meet the needs and interests of youth and children ages 3-15.   Our offerings include Traditional (ages 3-teen), Specialty and Sports camps.  With locations in Garwood, Mountainside and Westfield, we're sure to have what you're looking for this summer!

Online registration is available for current members (if you want to apply the multiple child discount, registration must be in person).

All Westfield Area Y camps are accredited by the American Camp Association, meeting up to 300 standards for health, safety and program quality.

The Y camp curriculum is structured to promote teamwork, enhance self-esteem and build skills. We incorporate the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility into all that we do. Every member of our camp staff receives over 30 hours of pre-camp training including certification in CPR for the Professional Rescuer and First Aid with EpiPen administration as well as asthma inhaler training, anti-bullying, behavior management and more. We also have a full-time EMT on staff during the camp season. 

We hope that you enjoy your Westfield Area Y camp experience! If you have any questions, please contact Marty Collett, Director of Youth, Teen and Camp Services at x405 or mcollett@westfieldynj.org.
