ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE, LEARN & CREATE 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 Spring 2 Session begins Monday, April 20th, and we're offering programs for all ages and interests. From kids to teens to adults to family, YMCA Silver Spring will help your whole family get active! Here's what we have lined up:
Boot Camp Blast - Sundays at 8:30am
Better Balance - Wednesdays & Fridays at 11:30am
Salsa - Fridays at 6pm
Family Dance Class - Sundays at 5pm
Kids Yoga (ages 5-12) - Sundays at 10:30am
Teen Strength Training - Mondays & Wednesdays at 4:30pm
Registration opens Monday, April 6th, so let your family's mental and physical health bloom this Spring! For more information, please contact Hannah Hutton, Group Exercise Coordinator, via email or by calling 301-585-2120.

free swim lessons for families who qualify
Swim lessons not only keep kids safe in the water, they can also be the first step in building confidence, social skills and healthy living. We are excited to learn your child wants to swim! Through the generosity of Shannon’s Fund, a scholarship opportunity named in memory of Shannon Hawkins (one of our beloved aquatics instructors), we are able to provide free swim lessons for youth and teens between the ages of 6 and 17. In order to qualify for the funds, recipients must have little to no swimming skills and demonstrate a financial need.
