DISCOVER SUMMER AT THE Y!
Today, day camp is more vital than ever. To deliver on the Y’s commitment to nurturing 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 is even more prevelant now with the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic has had on children learning. Our curriculum includes 2 hours per day of enrichment time that, through research, has been proven to help close this learning gap.

WELCOME TO ALL
Financial Assistance is available to those who apply and qualify. Annual Campaign Funds are raised by the Y each year to help provide this benefit to the community. The Y recognizes that some individuals and families struggle to pay the rent, put food on the table and buy clothes for their kids due to unforeseen circumstances. They need financial assistance to come to the Y, to stay healthy, to be active and to thrive in life. Through the annual campaign, we make sure that our doors are open to all. Donor support helps thousands of youth and families live healthier and happier lives. They do better in school. They manage their illnesses. And kids get a good square meal!
If you feel that you are in need of assistance to become a Y member or program participant, please ask for a financial assistance form at the front desk. You may also download and print from this page. For more information, contact email@example.com
