Meet the Saddletowne YMCA’s Youth and Day Camps Director!

Adam Luciuk aka Splinter

Youth, Climbing and Day Camp Director

With so many Summer Day Camps offered throughout the city, why should families choose YMCA Saddletowne Day Camps?

We offer fun, adventurous and safe summer experiences for children of all ages in our vibrant community. They can explore swimming, climbing, off-site day trips, gym activities, arts and crafts, the great outdoors and much more. Very few other camps offer as many different activities within their regular day camps as we do. Let your children discover a new passion with us!

What are you most excited about this summer?

I am very excited about our NEW Sport Development Camps. Our skilled sports coach will help young athletes of any ability to achieve their potential this summer. Whether your child is passionate about soccer or basketball, or wants to try something new and excited this summer, this camp is for them.

 

When you’re not leading our Day Camps this summer, what will you be doing?

When I’m not at work, I’ll be spending time in the great outdoors, camping and exploring new places. When I’m not spending time in the outdoors, I’ll be working on a project: planning what experience I will embark on next or looking for a creative way to share my knowledge with others.

Thinking back to last summer, what did our Day Campers teach you the most?

That life should be fun!
