Explorers
Ages 3-5

Young children need a more structured and nurturing atmosphere. During Explorer Camp our campers follow a daily schedule full of age appropriate indoor and outdoor activities including daily swimming lessons. Our nurturing counselors encourage campers to socialize and interact with their peers during activities that help develop their fine and gross motor skills. Whether they spend a half day, full day or extended day at the Y, our little Explorers will experience new learning adventures every day at Camp Funshine.

Funshine LITLeaders in Training (LIT’s)
Ages 13-14

What better way to keep teens active throughout the summer then to enroll them in a summer where they will learn important life skills including the skills needed to become future camp counselors. LIT’s spend most of their day shadowing our camp counselors learning to mentor and provide assistance to young campers but there is  also plenty of time for them to build positive relationships with their peers.

Campers who have completed two years of camp, one of which must have been in our L.I.T. program, are eligible to enroll in this free program. This program will afford participants the opportunity to learn the specific skills needed to become a  future camp counselor. Campers will also shadow our camp counselors and work with our younger campers. There is a maximum of six participants in this program.

Totally Trip Week
