Summer Day Camp FAQ

Is there a registration cap? 

NO! 2024 Summer Day Camp does NOT have registration caps or limitations on spot availability.

Are meals provided?

The YMCA provides a morning and afternoon snack to all participants each camp day.

In previous years, our participants have been able to utilize the Bartlesville school district's summer feeding program for breakfast and lunch free of charge. At this time, we are still waiting on confirmation of the BPS summer feeding program. We will release official details when we have them. 

On days that lunch is not provided by BPS summer feeding program, students will need to bring a sack lunch. These days will be communicated at minimum 2 days in advance. 

What do students do at Day Camp? 

- Onsite Activities -
Students will be allowed and encouraged to participate in a wide variety of experiences including but not limited to arts and crafts, STEAM activities, games, music, reading, and so much more! In addition, campers may have the opportunity to take supervised walks to Sooner Park and/or the splash pad by Sooner Pool.

- Swim Days -
Camp participants will swim at Sooner Pool two days out of the week. Swimming will begin the second week of camp. Participants in grades 1st through 5th will be required to take a swim test the first day they attend. There are three levels of swimmers; beginner (red), intermediate (yellow), and advanced (green). Campers will receive a red, yellow or green wrist band to wear while we are at the pool. Advanced swimmers are allowed to swim anywhere in the pool including the deep end. Intermediate swimmers may only go as far as the middle section of the pool. Beginner swimmers along with participants who have completed PreK and Kindergarten will only be allowed to swim in the shallow end. All participants who just completed PreK will be required to wear a life jacket. If any student brings a life jacket with them, they will be required to wear the lifejacket the entire time. Half of our staff will be in the pool while the remainder will be stationed around the edges of the pool. 

- Field Trips -
Guardians will be informed in writing at least one week in advance of any program sponsored field trip or activities away from the program premises. The guardian understands if they choose for the child to miss the field trip/activity it will be their responsibility to arrange for alternative care during that time. With prior approval from the Youth and Family Director, Summer Buckles, guardians may drop-off children at the field trip location if they cannot make the bus departure time. The children and staff will be transported by the YMCA on a BPS bus with a BPS bus driver to all field trip locations. Bus departures are FIRM; pro-rated and/or refunds for missed bus departures are not available. Field trip day Itineraries will be provided to guardians 3 days in advance.
