2016 Camp Photo Diary: Week 7

Jul 15, 2016, 10:27 AM by

Did you know that everyday the average American child spends 270 minutes watching TV, 80 minutes playing video games, 82 minutes on their cell phone and about 30 minutes on a computer. That doesn't leave a lot of time for discovery, connection, active play and adventure.

That may just be the beauty of summer camp — no electronics means no distraction. Kids can dive into (sometimes literally) a world of friendships, play, creativity, exploration, nature, inspiration, mud, dirt and giggles. That is never more apparent than this week. During week 7 at YMCA summer camp, our teen campers toured Mile High Stadium, our Longmont day campers got a crash course in tie-dying, our Adventure Campers climbed to new heights, and our Fun in the Sun day campers had the chance to experience some good ol' fashioned technology — vintage arcade games. Plus, campers YMCA Camp Santa Maria experienced archery, paddleboarding, nature hikes, campfires, kayaking and more.

There is still time to sign up for summer camp! Register your child now.
