Thank you for a

FANTASTIC SUMMER! 

The “CAMP LIFE” includes:

Traditional Camps:

A typical day offers a wide range of activities that encourage learning and creativity to meet the needs of every child. Campers participate in Instructional and Free Swim, exercise through Sports and Games, share experiences in Activity/Choice Time, and of course, take a break for Lunch. 

Specialty Camps:

Campers in our Specialty Camps participate in Free Swim, Instructional Swim, and Lunch, along with their specialty of choice. Campers improve their skills with an in depth look to become the best Artist, Performer, Chef, Scientist, or Athlete they can be! Impactful, adventurous field trips, on-site educational assemblies, and jam-packed Fun Fridays, help expand and round out the Camp Wydaca experience.

Wyckoff Family YMCA in ACTION!

The Wyckoff Family YMCA Sharks Swim Team’s 35 volunteers have been providing swim lessons to our Oasis campers for almost 10 years. This special group of campers join us from Oasis, a Haven for Women and children of Paterson New Jersey. 
 
The Y has welcomed these children for over 13 summers at no cost to the families. The Learn to Swim program the YMCA uses was developed by USA Swimming in conjunction with Olympian’s Cullen Jones’ Make a Splash campaign. 
 
With accidental death by drowning being the number two cause of death for children in the United States, Coach Ken believes the Sharks are offering a life skill with a healthy respect for the water in a fun filled environment. 
 
One of our lead Shark instructors, Courtney Caccamo explains that “being part of the Oasis program is a rewarding experience. The campers enjoy learning how to swim and appreciate all of the time and effort that goes into their instruction.” Cameron Roche leads with Courtney and states “Oasis is not only a fun experience, but an enriching one. It is amazing to see the campers go from being fearful of the water, to becoming confident swimmers.” 
 
The Wyckoff Family YMCA is grateful to the Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities and their grant which helped expand and strengthen this program.
