Summer Club

YMCA Summer Club is the best way for school age children to spend their summer as our caring and enthusiastic staff guide your child’s development through fun and engaging programs, including field trips and weekly lake visits. Weekly themes ensure that the whole summer is filled with fun from start to finish as children laugh and play in our inclusive environment. Children can join by the week or on a part-time basis to meet every family’s needs.

We encourage families to visit or contact us to arrange a tour. Parents and families can find out more about YMCA Group Care 3-5 Years in our Parent Package.
