KIDS ARE IN FOR ADVENTURE AT FREEHOLD FAMILY YMCA DAY CAMP!

Freehold Family YMCA Day Camp offers children 6-15 years old an enriching summer of recreational swim, sports, games, and much more. Just the right amount of swimming and sports for your child in a safe, nurturing environment where we incorporate our core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and inclusion into all that we do. Your child will learn new skills, develop lasting friendships — and most of all, have fun!

We give youth an enriching, safe experience with caring staff and volunteers who model positive values that help build kids’ character.

Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper. Safety is our #1 priority! Our counselors are hired based on their skills and receive extensive training in a variety of topics prior to the start of each camp season and are First Aid and CPR certified.

  • Red Cross certified swim instructors and lifeguards
  • Allergy-aware facility and staff
  • Low camper-to-counselor ratio

NEW! CampDoc

To improve the quality of programming we provide to our families, The YMCA of Greater Monmouth County has made the decision to partner with a company called CampDoc. CampDoc is a YMCA Preferred Vendor and is the leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) system for camps. Designed by camp doctors, nurses and directors, CampDoc provides a secure and easy-to-use web-based solution which manages health forms, allergies, medications, and illness/injury tracking for our camps and programs both throughout the summer and during the off season.

After your registration is processed, you will receive an email from CampDoc to create your camper’s Health Profile. All parents are required to complete CampDoc forms for each of their children attending summer camp. All information in the health profile is kept confidential, and health details are shared with staff only when necessary, for proper care and safety.

If you do not receive an email, please check your junk/spam mail folder. CampDoc sends out periodic reminder emails for incomplete health information. These notifications come from CampDoc, so please add them to your safe sender list to avoid accidental delivery to junk and spam folders.
