Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Day camps and specialty camps at the Y share one thing: they're about discovery. Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it's fun too!
With so many demands on today's families and the increased focus on early brain development, families need all the support they can get to nurture the potential of youth. That's why the After School program at the Y focuses on holistically nurturing child development by providing a safe and healthy place to learn foundational skills, develop healthy and trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y's values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith.
Swim, Sports & Play
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, as well as developing healthy habits they'll carry with them throughout their lives. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it's gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
