Camp Wydaca

2020 Summer Camp Information:  

June 2 Update:

Dear Camp Families,

As we begin to plan our Camp Opening July 6, we are eager to hear from you regarding your summer plans. In order to begin the process, please take a moment to fill out the attached Brief Questionnaire (BELOW) and return back by Monday, June 8, if possible.

Because the information from the State has been so delayed, we are trying our best to make up for “ lost time” and serve you in the best possible way.

Many of you have asked about the payments and how it will work this year, since its been a whole new set of challenges.

Due to the economic climate, there will be no automatic drafting put into place prior to July 1. After July 1, drafting will occur every two weeks. And, of course, you certainly can create your own installment plan based on your own situation.

As always, the Wyckoff Family YMCA has a Scholarship Assistance Program in place to provide a support and resource system for our Camp Families.

Especially now, during these uncertain times, do not hesitate reaching out to our caring Staff regarding any questions you might have about this benefit.

Our next communication will be issued to you as soon as we receive the specific guidelines from the Governor’s office.

We are hopeful for that information within a few days. I am happy to report that we are already ahead of the curve in our planning. As a team, we are strong! And, as a team, we are creating a health and safety list to meet the highest standards. For instance, our Senior Staff will all undergo testing for the corona virus before returning.

Additionally, our day to day protocols include daily temperature checks, the purchase of essential protective equipment (i.e. face masks, gloves, hand washing stations, disinfectants etc.) in addition to more tents and the all-important social distancing strategy.


In the meantime, thank you so much for your patience as we navigate together toward the Camp Wydaca Countdown!

And moreover, thank you for your continued loyalty and confidence in the Y Team! You have our pledge of undivided commitment to deliver the safest, and most fulfilling summer experience for your family.


Joy Vottero, Executive Director and Chris Pillari, Camp Wydaca Director



The “CAMP LIFE” includes:

Traditional Camps:

The Camp Team is busy planning for Summer 2020 Camp Wydaca The Power of Kids. A typical day will offer a wide range of activities that encourage learning and creativity to meet the needs of every child while incorporating or weekly themes. Our plan is to have our Campers have a true "Outdoor Experience" and extra time for learning especially because of our current state. 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.
