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!).

KIDS IN THE KITCHEN
Saturday, March 7th from 10am-2pm
YMCA National Capital, Washington, DC


Healthy kids are more likely to become healthy adults. And part of growing up is creating the habits that will shape your child throughout his/ her life. Join us for this fun, free event that will teach your kids how to make safe and healthy choices every day. Kids in the Kitchen is an annual spring event in partnership with the Junior League of Washington that features high-energy exercise activities, cooking demonstrations and snacks from local chefs, certified nutritionists, free dental screenings from the Colgate Mobile Dental Van and much more! 

We hope to see your family at our fun-filled day of games, crafts, hands-on learning and exciting raffle prizes - all to celebrate nutritional literacy!


FOOD FORUM: WHY & HOW TO EAT LOCAL IN DC
Thursday, March 19th from 7pm-9pm
YMCA National Capital, Washington, DC

Food is more than cooking. Where we purchase it, how we prepare it and how each piece got to our plate are all critical to our health. Join us for our 1st Ted Talk-style Food Forum followed by discussion! Our guest speakers include:
  • Susan Blasko of Polyface Farm
  • Jen Hawse of Relay Foods
  • Greg Glenn of Rocklands Farm
  • Erica Porch of EatWell DC
  • MOMs Organic Market
It costs only $5 for members ($10 for non-members) and will transform the way you approach what you put into your body. Click here to register online! You can also email Kristy McCarron, our Healthy Eating Specialist.


Healthy Kids Day

And that’s why we celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our biggest day of the year devoted to kids and MORE!
