Arizona YMCA Summer Camps

Live the Good Life at Camp Sky-Y!

Hey kids, guess what? It’s going to be 105 degrees again this summer. But don’t be bored, instead have the time of your life at Sky-Y summer camp in the much cooler mountains in Prescott, Arizona. There’s fun stuff to do from sunrise to long after sunset, like hiking, high ropes, campfires, and exploring the great outdoors.

So tell mom she won’t have to nag you this summer. She can send you to the Y’s summer camp!
