West Cook YMCA


camp magellan: Summer day camp

JUNE 14TH – AUGUST 13th 

Welcome to Camp Magellan! This year's summer day camp is all about making discoveries and creating lasting friendships. Here at Camp Magellan, we place a strong emphasis on character development through building positive relationships, providing opportunities for youth to achieve their goals, and promoting a sense of belonging. Our camp is filled with outdoor time, swimming, playing sports and games, STEM experiments, art projects, and an overall safe space for kids to be kids!

The West Cook YMCA has been running childcare programs during the pandemic, beginning with our Emergency Childcare Program for Essential Workers, to our Remote Learning Supervision Program in partnership with River Forest School District 90. The same care and quality trusted by our healthcare workers, school partners, and our families will be implemented in our day camp program.

For questions, contact our Day Camp team at daycamp@westcookymca.org.
