We believe camp is a transformational experience. Our day camps give kids the chance to make new friends, learn new skills, and interact with nature as they engage in physical, social and educational activities––and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Union Park Day Camp

The Dubuque YMCA Day Camp at Union Park has a strong emphasis on enjoying nature and being active in the outdoors. Join us, where memories are made and adventure is on the schedule every day! Kids will explore new ideas and develop skills they can use in all aspects of life!

Summer Adventures

A summer worth talking about for years to come! Children will be engaged in a variety of activities that promote their educational learning along with their social-emotional growth. Children will work individually, with partners, and in teams, to create a summer that will be an “adventure” of a lifetime.

We partner with ISU Educational Outreach, Dubuque County Farm Bureau Educational Outreach, and other local organizations to enrich our programs with activities that provide meaningful experiences and thoughtful engagement.
