Summer Day Camp

Although it isn’t quite summer yet, this is the time

of year parents begin to plan for summer child

care.   Parents in the Westland-area have a new

option available to make sure their children are

both in a safe environment and have their best

summer ever.  The City of Westland and Livonia

Family YMCA have partnered to provide 11 weeks

of summer day camp, offering a variety of

programs and activities that stimulate both mind

and body.


“It’s important for children to be active and to continue learning new skills throughout the summer months,” said Brian Wolverton, Executive Director of the Livonia Family YMCA.  “Day camp at the Y provides kids with adventure, healthy fun, personal growth and new friendships that can create memory and relationships that last long past the summer.”


The week-long themed day camp sessions run June 19 to September 1, and is open to children between the ages of 5 and 12.  Children must be five years old as of September 1, 2016 to attend.  Held at Central City Park, inside the Farmers Market Pavilion, the summer programs will take advantage of the parks many amenities including playscape and H20 splash pad, as well as provide fun activities that develop character and teach new skills.  Children will travel up to three times a week to explore the outdoors, participate in field trips and go swimming.


“This is the first year that the City of Westland and the Livonia Family YMCA have partnered to offer summer day camp,” said Mayor William Wild, City of Westland.  “We believe this is a great opportunity for families from Westland and the surrounding areas to provide their children with a great summer experience, in a safe nurturing space. YMCA day camps provide a welcoming environment for kids where they can belong, build friendships, develop character and simply have fun.  This is a win-win partnership for both the Y and the City of Westland.”


The Y supports all children in the community and helps them discover their potential,” said Wolverton. “For families who cannot afford camp, the YMCA offers financial assistance programs so they can participate as well.”
