I.D.E.A. Camps

Promoting Interactive Discovery and Educational Adventures in Cumberland County

About this program

I.D.E.A. Camps

​NEW! YWCA Carlisle is hosting week-long half-day camps for elementary and middle school campers to explore a variety of educational topics by engaging with local professionals and participating in interactive activities and projects, while maintaining a safe, fun experience for all campers. Campers will be challenged by creating their own projects or demonstrations, and will develop unique skills and talents relating to the featured weekly topic. Campers will participate in a field trip relating to the theme each week, and every week will culminate in a trip to the Carlisle Community Pool.

YWCA Carlisle’s I.D.E.A. Discovery Camps, designed for elementary-aged campers, will run from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. A light breakfast will be provided. I.D.E.A. Discovery Camps will provide campers with opportunities to learn about fascinating subjects outside of the classroom and will promote a love of learning.

YWCA Carlisle’s I.D.E.A. Career Camps, designed for middle school students, will run from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Light snacks will be provided in the afternoon. Campers will be introduced to numerous career fields and trade options, allowing campers to explore the possibilities of the future!
