Camp Weber

During these challenging times we have developed a program to serve:
The YMCA of Greater Springfield is working to ensure you have access to the programs you need. our programs are and have always been designed with the health and safety of everyone in mind. In fact, “safety” is our rule number one. all camp staff are CPR and First Aid certified and each program has a trained full-time health administrator on duty all day. our “on call” Pediatric Doctor is available ensure that our medical services are complete and wrap around. our camps must and do comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public health and be licensed by the local board of health.

New health and safety policies have been added to our existing policies to improve our program environment. these include: new 1 to 6 group sizes (buses 1 child to a seat), additional bathrooms and hand-wash stations, staff face masks, temperature checks, hand sanitizing stations, increased hand-washing routines, curbside pickup and drop off only and social distancing rules for all. Weekly professional cleanings (all locations) and staff and campers will only be allowed into programs.

Our goal this summer is to provide a safe, healthy space where children are free to let their imaginations run wild. children’s social and emotional well-being can be compromised with closed schools, social isolation, food scarcity, anxiety, uncertainty and parental unemployment, the global pandemic has also destabilized kids’ support system. We are taking steps to build in social and emotional support from qualified healthcare professionals to help deal with some of uncertainty and provide children with an environment your child can trust.

Fun and Play are how kids learn and camp would not be camp without it! being creative is the key here; We’ve packed all the large group fun into small groups which means campers have a more personalized experience with their friends and counselors. Smaller groups in the pool and more swim time! Your child will benefit from highly trained individual counselors that will make each and every activity at camp a unique and fun experience like never before!

Kids at CampLeaders-in-Training Camp


Location: Springfield YMCA

The Y believes every teenager should have the opportunity to explore his or her potential and think big. We know that teens will rise to meet expectations set for them, so we set our expectations high. The mentors, staff and other role models in our programs value our teens’ individuality and guide them toward becoming responsible and engaged adults.

Our day camps for teens are designed to be a place where they can be themselves and learn valuable skills. We offer a fun environment where teens develop qualities that provide them with the opportunity to:

  • Learn about themselves and what they have to offer
  • Thrive in leadership experiences specific to camp counseling
  • Team build, focus on character development and participate in community service

To activate their leadership potential, our Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) program engages teens in group work, problem solving and self-discovery, believing that confident teens who become their best selves today will become contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Children’s safety is a foundational priority for the Y in our mission to help youth reach their full potential. In our commitment to ensuring the protection of every child, our staff and volunteers adhere to strict Child Abuse Prevention Policies and Reporting Procedures. These policies and procedures promote a positive, nurturing environment while protecting children and teens, and those who work with them in our organization.

YMCA Policy prohibits sex offenders from accessing YMCA facilities. In order to ensure the safety of our children, we regularly compare our membership database to the National Registry of Convicted Sex Offenders and terminate the membership and/or access rights of anyone registered

To keep children in our programs safe, we take the following steps in our intensive screening of employees and volunteers:

  • Detailed application forms
  • Comprehensive interview process
  • Reference checks
  • Criminal record checks
  • Members and program participants are required to abide by our Code of Conduct
  • Staff and Volunteers complete an extensive child abuse prevention training program
  • Staff and Volunteers are required to abide by our with Child Abuse Prevention Policies

See something, Say Something

It takes everyone’s help to stop the cycle of abuse. If you encounter what might appear to be an act of child abuse or neglect, we offer a confidential consultation hotline through Praesidium Child Abuse Prevention. You can share your concerns safely.  YMCA Staff are mandated to report any suspected child abuse.

The statistics are startling. Approximately twenty percent of ALL victims of sexual abuse are under age eight. One in five children are sexually solicited while on the internet.  Thirty to forty percent of children who are sexually abused are abused by family members. There are an estimated 39 million survivors of sexual abuse living in the U.S. today.

But there’s good news too. The Community YMCA has partnered with Darkness to Light, a nationally acclaimed non-profit, to bring its award winning prevention program, Stewards of Children to Delaware County, Pa.  Stewards of Children is a two hour workshop designed to educate adults on how to recognize, prevent and react responsibly to the reality of child sexual abuse.  Stewards of Children emphasizes child safety as an adult’s responsibility.

There are specific trainings open to the public, and can be of specific interest to youth sports organizations, coaches, camp counselors, teachers, schools, faith centers, and other service organizations. The trainings facilitate discussion about the incidence and consequence of abuse and presents information about child protection policies and mandates. Continuing education credits for professionals in various fields can be obtained through this training.

Call 610.557.YMCA (9622) to register for the next training date.

Pediatric First Aid and CPR/AED  for Infants, Children and Adults

American Red Cross and American Heart Association CPR/AED classes take just a few hours, but can help you save a life when every moment counts. With CPR/AED classes for Good Samaritans, parents, teachers, grandparents, and  office staff, we can help you learn how, and when, to provide care for someone experiencing an emergency situation.

Call 610.557.YMCA (9622) to register for the next training.
