SUMMER DAY CAMPS

AGES 6-13

Now more than ever we believe kids need the benefits that a summer at the Y can bring. Summer programs will provide the opportunity for children to regain a sense of normalcy as well as support their physical, social and emotional well-being after being at home for a long period of time.

While this summer will look a bit different at the Y, children will still have the opportunity to make their summer active and fun through crafts, sports, indoor and outdoor games, new friends, and other fun ways to learn, grow and thrive.
