The YMCA has redeployed resources to run Youth Day Camp during the school closure for the COVID-19 emergency so that we are here to support the child care needs for our community- especially those who provide essential services.  The Y’s primary site is at the main facility, but has capacity to serve up to 150 youth at 2 sites- the other being Y Camp Vanasek.  Our program sites and trained Counselors provide a safe place to learn, grow and thrive during these challenging times.  Campers will have the same experiences that we are known for, including STEM, social emotional learning activities, group games, outdoor activities, and so much more.

This program will be available for youth grades K-8.  Camps will run from 7am-6pm Monday-Friday until school re-opens.

We will first accommodate children of essential service workers in our community, and Financial Assistance will always be available for those who qualify.  Otherwise, fees are $30 per day for members and $35 for community members.
