Camp Bucks Jr. during Summer, 2020

Age 3-6 | Camp Bucks, Jr. is designed as a stepping stone for families looking for that camp experience, but not ready for that big camp feel. Camp Bucks, Jr. provides a more intimate setting with low child to staff ratios to provide extra individualized attention and nurturing. Located at our year-round child care site, this camp is fully DHS licensed and STARS accredited. Staff consists of mature, highly qualified staff with many years of experience. Children will receive continuing education to prepare them for Preschool - Kindergarten including Reading, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), Music, and Gross/Fine Motor skills. They will also enjoy FREE local trips to the firehouse, library, and parks!

  • Financial Assistance available; applications due by April 1

Ages 6 weeks - age 2 | Our programs for Infants and Toddlers feature low, child to adult ratios and the type of care parents have come to expect from YMCA staff. Our classrooms include cribs, changing tables and individualized care for children.


YMCA of Bucks County Youth Education Center offers programs for children 2 yrs to Pre-K. The Preschool builds on a child's natural desire to learn new things and become more self-reliant. Getting along with other children, sharing, taking turns and working in a group are a natural part of playing games or learning a new craft.
