Explore the different shades of summer in McGaw YMCA's Camp Rainbow. Camp Rainbow offers all the fun of day camp in a half-day format designed specifically for preschoolers. Children explore the world through art, hands-on math and science, stories and music, games and sports, field trips and beach days, and organized swim lessons.
We base our summer around learning – and we know learning can be fun. Through hands-on activities, children will learn about nutrition through our participation in the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food Program. A healthy summer means a fun summer.
Campers enjoy weekly beach days at local beaches while also exploring nearby parks, the local community, and gardens. In addition, once a week, our Camp Rainbow campers receive swimming lessons. By the end of the summer, our aquatics staff will have your children excited and comfortable around water.
Our staff is selected for their expertise, enthusiasm, and experience. All lead teachers have college-level studies in child development and look forward to camp every morning as much as the children.
We know summer can be busy – that’s why we offer the option to sign up your child for one week, every week, or anything in between. For any Camp Rainbow questions, or to sign up for camp, contact Luba Dimitrova at LubaD@mcgawymca.org or at 847-475-8580 ext. 317.
