See Description Below

YMCA Camp Dakota (Grades K-6th)


Health & Safety
Our day camp meets the highest health and safety standards of the YMCA and the Connecticut Department of Health. Camper safety is the most important aspect of camping and will be emphasized during staff recruitment, training, and throughout the summer. First aid equipment is always available and staff is trained in First Aid and CPR.

Expert Staff Make It Fun
Our camp is only as good as the people who staff it. By this measure, Camp Dakota is very special. Camp staff is selected on the basis of experience, education, sensitivity, and enthusiasm. The entire staff participates in an extensive training session, which includes certification in CPR and Standard First Aid. Background checks are conducted on all members of the staff. All of our specialists and lifeguards are certified in their respective areas. Our goal is to serve as role models and to help each camper gain skills and enhance his or her self-esteem.
