Western Youth Network Summer Day Camps

UPDATE: We are only accepting current/previous WYN summer/afterschool youth for summer camp 2020. Unfortunately, we have had to dramatically decrease our numbers and can only offer the summer program to a limited number of youth. Our summer program has been heavily modified with strict expectations regarding personal protective equipment, social distancing, and current health status.

WYN’s six week summer camp for middle school youth gives teens of all socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to have a fun and enriching summer experience. Through WYN’s camp, teens have a safe and healthy place to spend their out-of-school hours while making summer memories that every young person deserves.

Our educational and adventure-based program takes campers outside of their comfort zones and introduces them to new concepts and activities. Over the course of the summer, WYN campers build a strong and uplifting community. In an environment with appropriate challenges and empowering support systems, youth develop critical confidence and character they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. With the help of the Sonny Sweet Scholarship Fund, we can ensure that finances never prevent a child from participating. Click here to learn more about the Sonny Sweet Scholarship Fund.
