FIND THE PERFECT SUMMER DAY CAMP FOR YOUR CHILD… It is time to make plans for your child to attend the BEST Summer Day Camp in the area! Registration is currently open for the Y Summer Day Camp as well as several Specialty Camps. Ranked the #1 Summer Day Camp in Stanly County for the past 7 years, we want to be your choice for your child.
Our goal is to help participants build muscle mass and muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance and improve functional ability. Additional goals include reducing the severity of therapy side effects, preventing unwanted weight changes and improving energy levels and self esteem. A final goal of the program is to assist participants in developing their own physical fitness program so they can continue to practice a healthy lifestyle, not only as part of their recovery, but as a way of life. In addition to the physical benefits, the program provides participants a supportive environment and a feeling of community with their fellow survivors, YMCA staff and members.
YMCA fitness instructors work with each participant to fit the program to their individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care.
