YMCA Camp Clay is open for public swimming on a daily basis.  Admission includes all aquatic activities in the park.  Since we are an outdoor facility involving water based activities, we are subject to changes in the weather.  If thunder or lightning is detected in the area, we must have all swimmers exit the water and turn off the splash pad for a minimum of 30 minutes from the last time we hear thunder or see lightning.  Please check the weather and plan your visit to Camp Clay accordingly. 

We post weather updates and closing alerts on our Facebook page (@campclayVW)
