"It’s the 'best summer ever' is a common phrase heard among children who attend the YMCA Summer Camp programs," says Jaime Gonzalez, senior director of Childcare and Day Camp. "With activities like archery, field games, STEAM activities, sports, arts and crafts and on-site shows, new adventure awaits for all! kids craving connection, fun and play. The Y offers a summer program that safely does just that."
Camp hours are 9:00a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with extended care available at no additional charge from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m.to 6:00 p.m. Due to COVID-19, the Y is taking many precautions to ensure the safety of the children and staff.
