When you enroll your kids in one of the local Greensboro, NC, youth sports camps, you are helping them develop skills, teamwork and confidence. YMCA sports camps provide youth a perfect opportunity to be active and hone skills.

Our camp’s primary focuses are drills and skill development, with emphasis on character development. Participants have fun in a safe learning environment while being encouraged to work on teamwork and a sense of belonging. 

By following all the safety precautions and COVID-19 guidelines, we aim to provide your child with a safe, secure and healthy environment. 

We offer sports camps at Bryan, Eden, Ragsdale, Reidsville and Spears YMCAs. Check all the important dates and information of your Y below and register your children for this incredible experience!
