"If you somehow positively impact one child and they get a sense of self and confidence and even just happiness, and they bring that back to their family and their school, camp can affect millions of people." - A Y camp counselor

Afterschool & Camp

Children are like sponges; they watch and absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. That's why our afterschool program is staffed with people who understand the cognitive, physical and social development of kids. They see the needs children have to feel connected and supported in trying new things, and the caring and reinforcement parents and families need to help each other.

At the Y babies develop trust and security, preschoolers experience early literacy and learn about their world, and school-age kids make friends, learn new skills and do homework. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Summer Day Camp

Join us outside as we play all day long! Day Camp is a perfect break away from our regular routines. Campers will engage in exciting experiences that will stretch imaginations and build positive values.

Fun is found through being active all week long! Daily field trips take us to local area playgrounds and parks, spirited games of bowling, fun and exciting movies, or exploring our local caves.

Every day we get to share with each other through camp skits and songs that aid in building friendships. Games at camp keep us active at play all day long while promoting team building. Along with all the fun, we will have healthy and tasty lunches daily for each camper.
