Today, day camp is more vital than ever. To deliver on the Y’s commitment to nurture the potential of every child and teen, day camp focuses on character development from the following practice areas:
EMOTION MANAGEMENT Adults support youth to be aware of and constructively handle both positive and challenging emotions.
EMPATHY Adults work with youth to relate to others with acceptance, understanding, and sensitivity to diverse perspectives and experiences.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT Adults encourage youth to act, persist, and initiate goals and outcomes even through the ups and downs of difficult situations and challenges.
RELATIONSHIP BUILDING Adults foster experiences where youth plan, collaborate, and coordinate action with others.
RESPONSIBILITY Adults develop youth to be reliable and committed and to fulfill obligations and challenging roles.

Closing the Learning Gap
At the Y, we think Summer is a time every child deserves. The learning gap between the end of the school year and the start of the next school year is increasing with each year. This issue will be even more prevalent this year with the COVID-19 crisis. Our curriculum includes 2 hours per day of enrichment time that, through research, has been proven to help close this learning gap.
