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 branches across the region. Be sure to sign up early (before space runs out in your camper's favorite program!).
Home of the YSS Piranhas! The Piranhas are a competitive swim team that competes year round in both YMCA and USA Swimming leagues. We provide a value centered program based around the YMCA's four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We use these values in our mission to develop swimmers of all ability levels to perform at their greatest potential. Our professional coaches emphasize a team environment along with the stroke technique and work ethic needed to succeed in competitive swimming. Please visit our website for more information
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.
