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 branches across the region. Be sure to sign up early (before space runs out in your camper's favorite program!).

Our 2015 Camp Brochure

new group exercise classes!

Kids Boot Camp, Coming February 12th!

We are thrilled to offer a brand new class on our Group Exercise Schedule - just for our youngest members! Kids Boot Camp (Thursdays at 5:30pm & Saturdays at 10:25am) will improve your child’s endurance, coordination and overall fitness level, while they have fun and meet new friends. Your child will develop self-esteem, confidence and a love for living a healthy lifestyle.

Silver Sneakers Yoga Has Arrived!

Join us Wednesdays at 11:30am for a new Yoga class designed for members with limited mobility or flexibility. You will have the option to either do the poses sitting in a chair or holding onto a chair.

February 27, 28 & March 1, 2015

Our Y offers a full lifeguard training course that includes American Red Cross CPR and First Aid, equipment-based rescues for aquatic environments, accident prevention, and decision making skills. This certification, once completed, is valid for two years!

We are thrilled to share that our pool and wellness floor have undergone extensive renovations. The wellness floor (re-opened Sept. 22) features a new layout and new equipment including Treadmills, Ellipticals and Adaptive Motion Trainers!

We will also be introducing the Cool Kids Club for kids ages 4-12 later this year. Construction began November 5th and is near complete. We plan to open the club in early 2015. Stay tuned for our Grand Opening Activities!

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