Kokomo YMCA CAMPHISTORY
Camp Tycony has been a tradition for more than 65 years, and this year’s program promises to be even better. With 52 acres of wooded land along the Wildcat Creek, we offer the perfect opportunity for kids to explore and grow.
What We Stand For
At the Y, we proudly have more than 130 years of experience in providing a safe, thriving environment for young people to explore personal interests, build self-esteem, develop interpersonal skills, discover creativity and make lasting friendships and memories. Our Day camp programs strive to instill the values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility in all of our campers through morning thoughts of the day, carefully designed programs, and intentional interactions with staff.
Growing Great Leaders
Camp is the original Social Network.
Trade in those computer and phone screens for some sun screen. Let your kids get outdoors and active, all while learning and making lasting memories and forever friends. Our staff are professional role models, trained in fun & safety and ready to make this summer the best summer ever for your child!
BEST. SUmmeR. EVER!
Camp Tycony has been a tradition for more than 65 years, and this year’s program promises to be even better. With 52 acres of wooded land along the Wildcat Creek, we offer the perfect opportunity for kids to explore and grow. Kids have the opportunity to have fun exploring nature, finding new talents, trying new activities, gaining independence, and making lasting friendships & memories.
Summer Discovery is a school age ‘day camp’ program held at the Downtown Y with a major focus on STEAM activities and enrichment. We will focus heavily on STEAM and summer learning loss prevention, as well as taking field trips to Camp Tycony three afternoons per week. Your kids will enjoy swimming twice a week and meals & snacks will be provided. This CCDF program serves ages completed Kindergarten through 5th grade (We will take children that have completed 5th grade and are going into Middle School in the fall.).
