Traditional Day Camps offered by the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas are licensed under the Texas Department of Safety and Health Services (TDSHS). These camps host activities that replicate a residential camp experience without having to stay the night. Camps focus on building character by nurturing the potential of each child and encouraging social responsibility. Kids spend 80% or more time outdoors. Through a collaboration with the USDA Summer Feeding Program, lunches are provided at certain locations by The Munson Foundation and City Square.
