DESIGN YOUR BEST SUMMER EVER
YMCA SUMMER PROGRAMS AND OPTIONS
Be a part of the best summer ever at the YMCA. The Westport Weston Family YMCA offers an array of summer camps, classes, clinics and activities to keep you children active and engaged from the time school’s out until the new school year begins again all in a safe, supportive environment. Why not try a week of Gymnastics or Dance and end the day at our traditional outdoor Camp Mahackeno?
Encourage your child to explore things they may have never tried and see them gain confidence week after week.
Our trained staff are ready to design a summer experience your camper will always remember! Check out the overview of our Family YMCA’s summer programs and options below.
YMCA Camp Mahackeno is a traditional summer camp for children in grades K-10th. Mahackeno runs at our outdoor center with its own pool, fields, pavilions and lodges. Campers for Mahackeno enjoy their entire day outside on the Mahackeno side of the property. With activities like swim lessons, canoeing, arts & crafts, nature, archery and low ropes, our campers make some wonderful summer memories. *NEW This Summer* Bouldering Wall, Two Giant Slides, New Archery Range, Brand New Pool and Locker Rooms and much more!
Camp runs in ONE week sessions to allow for easy summer scheduling! Drop off for camp is between 8:30 and 9:00 and pick up is between 3:15 and 4:00. Extended care is available (extra camp is extra fun). For more information, please click here.

The Y’s Dance Center’s year revolves around two semesters, Fall and Winter/Spring, culminating in an end-of-year performance each June. But the fun doesn’t stop after the Spring Recital!
The Dance Center conducts a number of camps and clinics throughout the summer, including the popular Princess Dance Camp, which gives little dancers ages 3 and 4 the chance to leap and twirl through the basics of ballet and tap. There’s a new princess to follow each day, who helps the other teachers show these little princesses in pink the elements of ballet and tap warm-ups, taught in a developmentally appropriate way (as in, “stomp that spider!” to get those tap shoes clacking…)
