Specialty Camps

Specialty Camps

Keep your child happy, healthy, active and having fun all summer long at the Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA during our specialty sports camps and leagues! Your child can enjoy a variety of programs from building agility fundamentals in our Accelerate program to learning about dodgeball, basketball, cardboard boat races, and more.


At Camp Imaginarium, we believe in hands-on learning adventures that unleash a child’s imagination! This camp is centered on STEM! What is STEM you ask? Science, technology, engineering, math and so much more! Kids will build new friendships as they experience interactive activities, learn how things work by taking apart mechanical objects, creating new inventions themselves, dabbling in technology, and even taking field trips around Siouxland. Our goal is that kids leave Camp Imaginarium with new skills, new passions, and the confidence to take risks and try new ideas!

Campers must bring a sack lunch (morning and afternoon snack provided), water bottle, swimsuit/towel, and their imaginations!

Registration opens March 1st and space is limited!!
