Cannon Memorial YMCA Registering for Summer Camp Program

Cannon Memorial YMCA's three branches, West Cabarrus, Kannapolis, and
Harrisburg, offer children the opportunity to experience hands on
indoor and outdoor camp fun, keep kids active and excited rather than
spending too much time watching TV and playing video games. They will
enjoy a variety of summer activities with their friends during each
camp session.

Weekly themes create an atmosphere of fun and learning at the same
time. The themes guide the weekly activities like arts and crafts,
nature activities, games, contests and team building games. Please
note that the themes and activities will vary by branch and are
subject to change.

All three camps run from June 13 through August 15. The West Cabarrus
branch welcomes children ages 3-17. The Kannapolis branch provides
care for rising 1st – rising 8th graders, and the Harrisburg branch
serves children ages 5-13. Both Harrisburg and West Cabarrus camps run
from 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM, while Kannapolis runs from 6:30 AM until
6:00 PM.
Weekly field trips are taken, and are now included in the cost of
camp. Campers will visit places like Discovery Place, Lazy 5 Ranch,
blue Water, the skating rink and more!

Registration for these camps begins on March 7th for members of the
YMCA and March 21st for program members. Don't miss our free
registration period going on until April 24th.

Cannon Memorial YMCA is one of the few area camps that welcomes
children who have moderate to intensive special needs. Children with
these unique needs take part in all traditional camp activities. When
necessary staff are able to transition children to activities that are
tailored to their special needs. For more information speak with one
of our camp directors.
