Intro to Sports Camp

Intro to Sports

Learn a new sport with our Intro to Sports Camps at the YMCA!

Throughout the school year, the Harrisburg Area YMCA Northern York location provides several 4-5 week introductions to a particular sport. The programs are open to elementary students in Grades 3-6, but Grades may vary by sport. (These sports camps were formerly known as Northern’s Extra-Curricular Activities.) The Northern York location currently offers Introduction to Basketball, Introduction to Volleyball, and Introduction to Track.

Through these camps, fun and fitness will be stressed and all participants will have the opportunity to play regardless of ability. The purpose is to try to eliminate pressure situations in elementary age sports. Fun is the key and everyone takes part!

To register your child, please contact the West Shore YMCA branch at 717-737-9622. For more information on each camp, please click on the links below!
