Build a super LEGO model, try a fun sport, become a wizard, experience an American Girl pal week, and much more! Your child could learn a new skill, make friends and create a lifetime of memories at one of the Y’s summer camps. We have over 16 branch locations in the Richmond-Petersburg area, and many camps include wrap around childcare. Don’t delay, since there might be a little Picasso in your family waiting to be discovered in our art camp.
