UNION PARK DAY CAMP

 

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of a child, our Y Day Camp experience focuses on:

Youth Development   |   Achievement   |   Relationships   |   Belonging

The Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA Union Park Day Camp has a strong emphasis on enjoying nature and being active in the outdoors. Camp helps each child develop environmental awareness while learning camping skills. Campers will also enjoy activities that promote individual growth in areas of self-esteem, responsibility, communication, independence, leadership, and our Christian values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
