Southeast Ventura County YMCA branches are taking early registrations for their summer day camps. Camp is from June 20 to August 18 through the Yarrow Family YMCA and from June 5 to August 4 through the Simi Valley Family YMCA.
Campers in TK to 5th
grade can attend full-time (four to five days a week) or part-time (two to three days a week) for the entire camp session or selected weeks. Leadership-In-Training camp is for 6th to 8th graders (full-time only).
Onsite activities include sports, swimming, arts and crafts and in-person shows based on the campers’ age group. Camp hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Extended care hours are 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at no additional charge.
"Each week we introduce theme-based activities. Campers can try their hand at cooking, acting and science projects. Besides having fun, the campers learn about character and social skills development and responsibility,” says Jaime Gonzalez, the Southeast Ventura County YMCA’s senior director of culture and engagement. "The Y always provides an atmosphere for positive personal growth for all our campers in a happy, safe environment."
The Yarrow YMCA camp will be at the Y daycare site at Willow Elementary School (29026 Laro Dr., Agoura Hills). The Simi YMCA camp will take place at the Atherwood Elementary School Y site (2350 E. Greensward St., Simi Valley).
