There’s no place like Y Day Camp at Camp Speers YMCA in Pike County! Our camp provides a safe, fun, and active environment for children to develop new skill, self-esteem and friendships. Day camp is a great choice for kids who want to laugh, learn, explore and grow in the great outdoors. Plus, a hot lunch is served daily in our camp dining hall!

Day camp programs offer children from Pre-K to tenth grade the opportunity to experience the exciting Camp Speers programs. Campers select from a variety of age-appropriate activities to create a fun schedule within their camp group like canoeing, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, sailing, arts & crafts, drama, songs and skits, survival skills, tie-dye, archery, nature art, sports, ga-ga, marksmanship, high ropes, music & more. Horseback riding is also available each week for an additional fee. *Activities are available based on age-appropriate progression.
