Whether it’s through singing or acting out skits, playing soccer or swimming; counselors at the Maui Family YMCA day camp programs have led kids in developing good values and having fun for more than 45 years. Wherever the location, the programs have the same outcome: kids have fun while they learn how to make new friends, build new skills, and grow self-confidence. For kids, the Maui Family Y camp programs are a fun way to enjoy the summer. For moms and dads, it’s a way to give their children a positive developmental experience. All camp programs provide basic skill knowledge in several different sports and activities. All games will be played in a noncompetitive atmosphere. Sports covered may include soccer, swimming, basketball, field hockey, football, and a wide variety of field games.

Camp Moana Specialty Camps

All Specialty Camps are taught by staff trained in a particular sport or activity. Whether it is swimming lessons, the sport of archery or cooking with our YMCA chef, there is something for everyone. When not in their Specialty Camps, campers will be participating in the Camp Moana program schedule.

Nurturing the potential of every child & teen

The YMCA was home to the world’s first group swimming lesson in 1907. The YMCA has a long history and an excellent reputation for teaching people how to swim. The Maui Family YMCA is no different. With lap swimming, open and family times, water exercise classes, swimming lessons (group or private) the Maui Family YMCA has everyone’s needs covered. Our YMCA instructors are certified to help any level of swimmer. If you are looking to learn a new stroke or just brush up on the ones you already know, our instructors can help.

Parent-child Lessons

6 months-2 years

Parent-Child classes provide experiences and activities for parents and infants to feel more comfortable in the water. The child will become aware of the differences between moving through water and on dry land, while the parent will become aware of how to teach his/ her child to be safe in and around the water. Participants will learn how to safely enter and exit the water, as well as how to submerge their faces and explore buoyancy in a front and back position. Parent-child swim lessons require one parent to accompany the child in the water.

Youth Swim Lessons

Students in Pike/Eel are oriented to the aquatics environment and progressively gain skills as they move through the YMCA swim program. At later levels, students build on their basic skills to learn propulsive movements on both the front and back. Personal safety and rescue skills are included to help students meet safety goals. By the end of the fish level, students will have obtained the skills and fitness level necessary for entrance into advanced courses such as swim club or other aquatic activities.


Level 1 • 3-5 years
Beginners could have a fear of being unfamiliar with how to swim. Their movements will be rudimentary. To progress to the next level they will paddle a length of the pool.


Level 2 • 5-8 years
Students can already paddle on their front, back, and side. They will be able to paddle across the pool without support and a couple of lengths of the pool with support.


Level 3 • 7-9 years
Students will be able to perform rudimentary crawl, back, fly, breast, elementary back, and sidestroke. Refinement levels of swimmers begin to look more like our traditional strokes. They are able to swim a couple lengths of the pool without support.


Level 4 • 8-10 years
Crawl stroke, backstroke, and elementary back stroke will be in good form. The rest of the strokes will improve and show all basic elements. Endurance will be improved and students will also be able to swim two lengths of the pool without support.


Level 5 • 8-11 years
All traditional strokes have all basic elements. Refinements are becoming mastered. Good endurance will allow swimming 300 continuous yards.


Level 6 • 8-13 years
All traditional strokes are mastered. Students work on improving efficiency, endurance, and adaptability to unique situations. They work on creative movements in the water.
