Our summer specialty camps provide fun activities, games and more. Specialty camps typically do not run every day of the week, and they end earlier than our summer day camps . These camps are perfect for families who are looking for fun activities for their children during the summer but do not require all-day care. Specialty Camps are held at the Schertz Family YMCA facility unless otherwise posted.

Y Day Camp boasts weekly field trips and age-appropriate activities designed to help children, ages 5 to 13, develop self-confidence and personal empowerment. Registration for day camp is available for the entire summer, for the weeks needed, or even for a day.

FitPath powered by ActivTrax
WHAT IT IS
FitPath is a FREE program for all Y members designed to help you reach your wellness goals. On your initial appointment, a YMCA Wellness Coach will discuss your goals, review all the options available to you, set up your ActivTrax profile and help create a program that’s right for you. Follow up appointments will be available to help ensure you stay on track and are achieving your goals.
WHAT IT’S NOT
FitPath is not a high-pressure sales pitch for personal training or a medical appointment where you’ll be poked and prodded. You don’t have to worry about being uncomfortable or embarrassed; you won’t be asked to do anything you don’t want to do.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Everyone! Whether you’re new to exercise or in tip-top shape, FitPath is designed to help everyone, whatever your goals, exercise or activity preferences may be. Whether you want to lift weights, take classes, swim, play sports or have some other interests in mind, we want to make sure we do our part in helping you get started on the right path.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Members who meet with a Wellness Coach within their first two weeks of joining are 6X more likely to achieve their goals. Let’s make sure you're one of them!
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits gained through early exposure to fitness are far greater than just physical health.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
If you are already a member simply schedule a time for an orientation and a staff person will walk you through the proper use of the equipment. Once registered, you will be on your way to monitoring your workouts!
READY, SET, HERE WE GO!
Come ready to your appointment prepared to exercise! Get a good night's sleep, wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes.
WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT
Your one-on-one appointment will include:
Us learning a bit about you
Establishing short, medium & long-term goals
An introduction to our online nutrition tool
An overview of how to use our ActivTrax system
Developing a customized and easy-to-follow plan
BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE
1-Week Guest Pass Upon completing your FIRST appointment, we'll provide you with a week-long guest pass for you to share with a guest visiting from out of town, friends or family–no strings attached.
