The Bainbridge-Decatur County YMCA is currently holding Camp Seminole, its summer camp for children aged 5-12 years old.

Camp began May 19 and will continue through August 4. Camp is held each weekday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the YMCA on Shotwell Street. The cost for members is $65 per week. The cost for non-members is $85 per week.

At Camp Seminole, children are put in groups according to age to promote growth and learning. Each week is filled with a variety of activities including arts and crafts, field trips, swimming, games, team sports, fishing, hiking, bowling, and special events centered on our weekly theme. Each day begins with a prayer or devotional story, and then the fun begins. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to campers for free through July 22.
