When school is out, the Y is in!
During school breaks, and vacations the Y offers a fun, educational Day Camp program for all kids. Each day is full of adventure, from crafts and STEM activities to swimming and outdoor adventures, there’s always fun to be had at the Y’s Day Camp!
Build self-confidence, meet new friends, and have a blast. Get a thrill from activities at the camp facility such as sports clinics, science experiments, or arts and crafts. From animal experiences to talking to astronauts and magicians, special guests bring excitement. Day campers will be divided into small groups by age and will participate in activities appropriate to the interests and needs of their group.
HEALTH & SAFETY
We are committed to providing a fun and enriching environment for your child while keeping them safe. We have learned over the last few months while providing Essential Personnel Childcare how to keep children safe in these unprecedented times. We will be following all CDC, ACA, YUSA, local health department, and state guidelines.

KEY - Distance Learning with a Personal Connection
The Knowledge, Enrichment and Youth Development (K.E.Y.) Program has been designed to support working parents while schools are required to provide distance learning. The program will focus on developing the potential of children and keeping them connected virtually to their teachers.
The Y will also provide unique and exciting outdoor and active programs that develop social-emotional skills and confidence in a positive, safe environment.
After School Care
The Y is at schools across RUSD! YMCA after school care provides opportunities for children to learn, grow, and thrive as they make their way from K-5th grade. We provide daily physical and educational activities like sports & recreation; homework support to assist students in meeting their teacher-assigned requirements; arts, science, math, and technology that allow students to engage in activities; all while socializing with friends at the same time.
