Welcome to Grove City Day Camp

There is no place like Day Camp – A home away from home where kids laugh, learn, explore and grow in the outdoors, while creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Kids discover not just the wonders of day camp but the joy of exploring their unique traits, talents and interests and the power of sharing their strengths and skills to benefit the group. That’s why more than 4,000 kids in Central Ohio attend the Y’s summer day camps; to belong, achieve and build relationships.
