During the program, Y staff will provide assistance to children as they complete remote learning tasks. The Y supplements this work time with daily fun physical activity, healthy snacks, and outdoor education and recreational activities that mirror those of the traditional camp programs. 

The Y offers flexible scheduling with both Before-Care and After-Care options available to registered families. Families can enroll by the month or week. Financial assistance is available to families in need through the Y for All program

The Y follows health guidelines on appropriate cleaning, PPE, and social distancing from the state, CDC, and American Camp Association. Children are placed in small groups, or “cohorts,” consisting of no more than 10 children, with an experienced, year-round instructor leading each cohort. Safety guidelines include mask requirements for children and staff, and daily health screenings at arrival.
