Explore our different camp options at three diverse locations: Drew University, the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA, and the Y’s Family Center. For preschoolers through children entering 10th grade, campers of all ages have the opportunity to grow this summer with Quest Camps in one of our camp programs, including MiniQuest (preschool, ages 3-4), KidsQuest (entering kindergarten - grade 6), Leader In Training camps (entering grades 7 - 10), and SpecialtyQuest (entering kindergarten - grade 6). 

MiniQuest Camps now provide full-day camp sessions for children ages 3 to 4 years. This longer camp day allows campers more opportunities to learn, play, and grow in a nurturing environment, constantly building on the YMCA’s Four Core Values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Before- and After-Care is available for MiniQuest campers. 

From morning to afternoon, MiniQuest campers explore a diverse variety of interests, including arts and crafts, active play, reading, and energizing stations. Every Friday, campers partake in “Fun Fridays,” where they enjoy unique experiences from a magic show to a bubble show! Click here to learn more about MiniQuest full-day camps. 

The Madison Area YMCA is excited to introduce its brand new SpecialtyQuest Camp for children entering kindergarten to grade 6. Located conveniently at the Madison Area YMCA’s Family Center, SpecialtyQuest Camp enables campers to explore the myriad of programs the Madison Area YMCA offers in addition to traditional camp activities. Each week, campers discover new passions and interests within the Y's School of Performing Arts, Gymnastics, Sports, Fine Arts, and Y Ninja Gym programs. Click here to find which program is perfect for YOU! 

“Quest Camps is a place to make new friendships, while exploring freedom during spontaneous play, filled with screen-free activities, structure that supports healthy eating and physical activity, a connection to nature, and a safe environment to promote growth,” said Camp Director Finola Colon.
