EXPLORE YOUR WORLD
SUMMER PRESCHOOL DAY CAMPS
Our Battle Creek Family YMCA is proud to announce the addition of preschool day camps this year! Our weekly day camps are for children ages 3-5 years of age and run for 7 weeks, Monday-Thursday 8:00am-11:00am.
Preschoolers will get to let their imaginations run wild as they begin to explore and learn more about the world in which they live through sight, sound, smell and touch. Each week your preschooler will have the opportunity to discover many elements centered on a specific topic of interest.
Camp #1 - June 20-23 - All about Nature
Camp #2 - June 27-30- All about Our Community
Camp #3 - July 11-14 - All about Diversity
Camp #4 - July 18-21 - All about Animals
Camp #5 - July 25-28 - All about the Arts
Camp #6 - August 1-4 - All about Water
Camp #7 - August 8-11 - All about STEM
