The Newark YMCA offers excellent educational and recreational summer day camp programs. When a child joins the Y’s Summer Day Camp, exciting opportunities, unparalleled sports programs, strong friendships and caring mentors are just the beginning.
Whether a child is learning to swim the length of our pool, participating in a scavenger hunt in the woods of our Camp Linwood facility, laughing with friends as they learn a game together, or writing in her journal with the guidance of a high school honors student, the Y is helping to build the community through our core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Thanks to the generosity of the Lisa Beth Gerstman Foundation, the YMCA of Newark and Vicinity's Summer Day Camp will expand programming for children with autism. The Newark Y is committed to providing the opportunity for all children to learn, grow and thrive in our community. We will offer two integrated camps for children with high-functioning autism, one in Jersey City and one in Newark. For program information, camp applications and rates, please email us at email@example.com.
The Lisa Beth Gerstman Foundation believes that every child deserves the opportunity to participate in safe, caring, and fun learning environments. The Foundation's primary goal is to allow each special needs child the chance to build self esteem and friendships through summer camping programs. The Foundation provides funding to accredited day camps that offer integrated programs that includes accredited counselors, wheelchair-accessibility , one-on-one swimming instruction, a caring environment for children and so much more!
