Y Day Camps

At the Island of Hawaii YMCA whenever school is out, the camp at the Y is in!

It’s more important than ever that children have a safe enriching environment for learning, both in and out of school. The YMCA's Day Camp program allows children to continue their social, emotional and physical growth when school is out.  Visit the Day Camp page more information on how to register or call us at 808-935-3721.

YMCA Sailing Program

Learn sailing, seamanship, and water safety from our sailing club located in Kawaihae. Open to ages 10 and up!

YMCA supports a program to instruct both youth and community members in sailing small boats from the Kawaihae harbor.

Junior Leaders Program

Looking for summer opportunities for ages 12-18? Volunteer with the YMCA for the Junior Leader Program!

The YMCA Junior Leader Program connects young people ages 12-18 with adult advisors at the YMCA to develop their leadership potential while fostering a culture of service.  With the help of role models and mentors, these teens develop the skills they need to lead positive change in their communities.
