YMCA Summer Camps
SUMMER OF ADVENTURE, LIFETIME OF MEMORIES
Our camps offer children positive developmental experiences that build confidence through skill-building activities suited to their age. Campers are able to explore creativity, teamwork and leadership in a wide range of physically active programs that influence lifelong healthy living. They also have the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor environment where they develop an appreciation of nature.
Summer Camp plays an important part in the lives of our communities’ youth as they develop towards adulthood. Children realize important life lessons and make memories each day as they learn from their surroundings and peers. Whatever interest your child has, there is a Y camp for them. Led by caring, highly trained staff, you can rest assure that your child is in a safe, nurturing environment.
Learn skills, achieve, develop character, stay active and have fun!
After School Programs
LEARNING AND FUN AFTER THE BELL
At the Y, we believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. It makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
Our After School programs keep school age students engaged in learning and fun activities outside of the classroom. We offer programming after school at our Ys and local schools. Some Ys also offer before school care with transportation.
We know that having quality, dependable care is important for working families. Care is also available during school vacation weeks, early release days, snow days and other school breaks.
All of our programs are licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Early Education and Care.
Our programs offers:
- Daily homework time
- Gross and fine motor activities
- Enrichment activities like swimming, yoga and sports
- Arts and crafts
- Healthy snacks
- Outside activities-weather permitting
- S.T.E.M activities
