Welcome to Camp Treetown
The Y is a place where everyone belongs and can be themselves while engaging in new experiences, strengthening character, building new skills and making friends.
Our well-rounded day camp programs are rooted in the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility while being intentional about fostering relationships, a sense of accomplishment, and belonging for all.
We are committed to providing youth with a positive environment that prioritizes safety and promotes participants to lead with empathy, build healthy relationships, effectively manage emotions, take responsibility for actions, and develop achievable goals.
The Ann Arbor YMCA Day Camp Team is here to cultivate your camper’s character, curiosity, and creativity to discover their passions and explore their potential.
Great summers start here!

How to Register
Call the Day Camp Registrar:
Safety at camp during covid-19 pandemic
Safety of participants, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. All in-person opportunities will abide by Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and governmental recommendations and regulations. Camp groups will be reduced in capacity to provide additional space in any indoor areas. All camp activities will be modified to minimize the necessity for close physical interactions. It is safe to assume that all in-person opportunities will require staff and campers to wear Personal Protective Equipment and to maintain a safe distance (6 feet) from one another whenever it is possible to do so.
Refund and transfer policy
At the time of registration, a deposit is due for each session for which the camper is registering. If we’re unable to move forward this summer as scheduled due to a government mandate, then all program fees and deposits will be refunded. Up to three weeks before the beginning of the specific camp session, all funds, less the deposit, are refundable and transferable within other day camp programs as space allows. This includes camp balance dues. Within three weeks of the beginning of the specific camp session, all funds are non-refundable and non-transferable to a balance due or to a new registration. If a camper, without notice, does not attend a session for which they are registered, there will be no refund issued. In cases of homesickness, dismissal, or voluntary withdrawal, there will be no refund of any fees.
Will there be swimming?
Campers attending Kidventure, Whiz Kids, and the Teen Experience will swim once a week.
What does my camper need to bring to camp?
Campers should bring a reusable water bottle (with their name on it), bug spray, sunscreen, lunch (optional), 2 snacks (optional), clothing appropriate for the weather, and a backpack.
How are medications handled at camp?
Below is our procedure for handling medication(s) at camp.
- Parents/guardians are expected to place medication(s) in a Ziploc bag with the child’s name, the name of medication, and dosage instructions (preferably left in its original bottle).
- At check-in on Monday, staff collect the medication(s) from the parents/guardians and place them inside of our portable medication lockbox for safekeeping.
- Medication(s) will be administered by the Health Officer or by a member of the Camp Leadership Team. EpiPens/Inhalers will be given to camp counselors in a portable lockbox for quick access in case of emergency but will be returned to the Camp Office at the end of the day.
- Medication(s) will stay in the Camp Office until Friday (unless there are other arrangements made with the parents/guardians. On Friday afternoon, medication(s) will be available for pick-up at check out.
