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.




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.
