In partnership with OAR, we are proud to be a Donation Box Location this October! OAR has provided gifts to children with incarcerated parents in our local detention centers for over 30 years. Each child receives gifts with a personalized note from their parent hand-delivered to them by volunteers or sent by mail. Please consider donating a new, unwrapped gift to a child who's parent is incarcerated.

SCHOOL day out CAMPS
When school is out for parent conferences or federal holidays, the Y has camps to keep your child learning and growing!

The day will be scheduled like a traditional day at camp with arts & crafts, sports, team building, dramatic play, enrichment, character development, science, youth wellness, service-learning and free choice activities. Our staff members reflect, demonstrate and teach the YMCA’s Character Development traits of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Space is limited for each camp day, so sign up now!
