DREAMING ABOUT SUMMER
The Y camp team is preparing for summer camp while awaiting official regulations and guidelines from state & local authorities. The governor has announced that summer learning can open no sooner than June 29th, but we anticipate there will be new information and guidance coming from his office soon. Here are some recent YMCA Camp developments .
- Camp Registration Online! YMCA Cape Cod has launched its online registration process and it can be found throughout our website and here. We encourage families to register as soon as possible. The Y is waiting on regulations regarding camp size, program dates, and transportation. Here are some details regarding our commitment to opening this summer:
- The actual start and end date of camp will be no sooner than June 29th. Anyone who registers for a week that is later determined not to be offered, will be fully refunded.
- The hours of operation may be effected by the new regulations. Once determined, any family who finds the operating hours unacceptable will be fully refunded.
- Camp capacity will be determined by the regulatory agencies. If we end up with more registrations than we can accommodate, we will accept campers on a first come, first serve basis. Preregistered families turned away due to capacity limits will be fully refunded.
- Bus transportation may be effected by the new regulations. If buses are not allowed to operate, families will be expected to transport their children to and from camp. Families who need to cancel their registrations due to the lack of transportation, will be fully refunded.
- If you have already registered for Week 1, June 22-26, please contact the Camp Registrar at 508-362-6500 x113 to reschedule. For Falmouth camp only, please call x148.
- Safety First! Safety has always been a top priority for the Y and this year we will follow CDC, state & local guidelines around protecting children, families and staff from contracting and spreading the coronavirus. We are re-envisioning our daily routines to establish protocols for safety around cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing, hand washing, eating, transportation and activities.
- Communication! The Y will continue to share our evolving plans for this summer. Be on the lookout for notices regarding developments.
The Y camp directors and staff are looking forward to seeing you again and creating the “Best Summer Ever!”

Summer camp is about adventure and discovery. At Camp Lyndon, kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, and gain independence. And, of course, it’s lots of fun too!
Camp Lyndon provides quality traditional day camping experiences that help children to grow in spirit, mind, and body while teaching the core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Morning Ceremonies: Join the whole camp for songs, announcements, welcomes, and daily news and updates.
Swimming: Swimming schedule allows every camper the opportunity to swim ever day! Half of each block will be a swim lesson and the other half free swim. Fridays will be entirely free swim! All campers are swim tested the first day of the session and camp staff performs buddy checks every 20 minutes.
Group Time: This counselor led time can be used to play games, experience outdoor cooking, do crafts, go on hikes, prepare for Special Event Days, go frog catching, and much more. This is a great time for campers to make friends and bond with counselors.
Lunch: Camp Lyndon offers a lunch program for you to enjoy, if interested. Campers sit with counselors at picnic tables and take a short break from the busy day at their unit areas.
Program: Camp Lyndon offers ten program areas: archery, boating, arts & crafts, drama, music & movement, nature, ropes, sports, and library. Program offerings vary depending age. Make sure to look at unit’s program offerings!
Choice Blocks: Campers can spend some extra time with friends at a favorite game or activity. Raft building, archery target engineering, kickball, and songwriting are just a few of things our campers can sign up for either day or week-long projects.
Sports: Fun and friendship at the core of all games and sports. While the traditional sports like basketball and soccer are played, there are many fun camp-styled games to play. Tennis-baseball or a game of “Rabbits and Squirrels” anyone?
Library: Our Literacy Summer Learning Loss program is based out of the “Lovely Library”. This program area includes an air-conditioned library complete with books, toys, games and bean bag chairs, so campers of all ages can relax in an educational, yet fun environment!
