The Boothbay Region YMCA and Central Lincoln County YMCA are partnering again this summer to provide the best summer ever for children and teens in Lincoln County. Summer camp at the Y is a place where youth learn values, build new skills, make new friends and develop self-confidence. YMCA Camp Knickerbocker is the Y’s traditional day camp for children 6-12 years old.

Located on beautiful Knickerbocker Lake with 65 acres of forest and wetlands, our day camp is a true outdoor experience for youth. Campers develop skills through a diverse curriculum of traditional camp activities that encourage youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Weekly activities include beach play, swimming, kayaking and canoeing, sports, arts and crafts, the Baldwin Center Adventure Course and field trips to local venues and hiking preserves.

Scamper Camp at Camp K is our day camp for students entering Kindergarten in the fall. Scamper campers enjoy the traditional day camp setting with participation in all that Camp Knickerbocker has to offer. Throughout every activity at camp, we strive to support youth in three areas:

• Friendship: we are here to inspire kids to make friends for a lifetime

• Achievement: we are here to show kids what they can do when they believe in themselves

• Belonging: we are here to welcome kids, and make them feel comfortable being themselves.

Camp Knickerbocker will run for 10 weekly sessions in 2017, from June 19 through Aug. 25. Transportation is provided daily for campers from the CLC YMCA to Camp K in the morning and back to the CLC Y each afternoon.

The CLC YMCA is a key collaborative leader improving the quality of life for all by being the champion for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The vision of the Boothbay Region YMCA is to nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living for all, and foster social responsibility.

Registration is now open for Y members and the general public, and scholarships are available. To register or complete a scholarship application, visit your home Y’s website www.boothbayregionymca.org or www.clcymca.org.
