Lynch/van Otterloo Y Camps

Summer is the time to discover!

Summer Camp plays an important part in the lives of our communities’ youth as they develop towards adulthood. Children realize important life lessons and make memories each day as they learn from their surroundings and peers. Whatever interest your child has, there is a Y camp for them. Led by caring, highly trained staff, you can rest assure that your child is in a safe, nurturing environment.

Welcome to our NEW Parent Portal for Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA Summer Camps. 

Whether your child is attending Children’s Island or camp at the Lynch/van Otterloo campus (or both!), we look forward to helping them make memories that will last a lifetime!
Below you will find all of the pertinent information you will need as you prepare for this upcoming summer.  Please note the necessary paperwork section at the top, as the Salem Board of Health requires all of this information be filled out in full before your child can attend their first week of camp.  Then, feel free to navigate our informative pages beneath that will detail all of the information for camp.  Our Parent Handbooks includes policies, procedures and packing lists….be sure to give that a gander!  If at any point you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at the phone numbers and/or e-mail addresses included in the Parent Packet.   We’ll be adding to this section as the summer draws nearer, so check-in periodically for the latest updates and happenings.
We are so excited to get this summer started with your camper.  We appreciate your efforts as part of this parent/staff partnership and look forward to chatting with you soon.
