    YMCA Camp Chickami is a traditional summer day camp located in Wayland, MA. Together, our proven programs and trained counselors deliver meaningful and memorable camp experiences that keep families coming back year after year after year. Chickami is often referred to as the best place on earth! We once overheard a young camper tell his friend that Camp Chickami is better than Disney World. 

    Camp Chickami is located on Route 20 in Wayland, MA. All summer long, campers ages 6 to 15/Grades 1-10 spend their days with enthusiastic counselors and friends in the great outdoors.

    Campers participate daily in traditional day camp activities like soccer, basketball, swimming lessons, and the low- and high-ropes challenge courses. But it is the not-so-traditional activities and events that campers talk about for years. Ever heard of Mud Soccer or Ultimate Sneaker?


    Leader-in-Training sessions provide our oldest campers (youth entering grades 10) a way to transition from camper to counselor. LITs gain valuable leadership skills and take on more responsibility at camp. LIT sessions are 2 weeks.
