Click here to register today for Summer Camp 2015!

Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

From traditional to specialty, here are the camp programs we are offering at our Y branch. Be sure to sign up early (before space runs out in your camper's favorite program!).

Our cool kids club is now open!

We are thrilled to share that we now offer free child care for kids ages 4-12 while parents work out! The Cool Kids Club is free for full-privilege members and is open the following hours:
  • Monday-Thursday - 4pm-8pm
  • Saturday - 9am-2pm
We have an abundance of activities for the children to participate in: STEM activities, arts and crafts, interactive video games, card & board games and active play. In addition, in late 2014, our pool and wellness floor have undergone extensive renovations. The wellness floor features a new layout and new equipment including Treadmills, Ellipticals and Adaptive Motion Trainers!

We hope these improvements help our Y grow with our community’s needs.
