Summit Area YMCA Introduces iPad Technology in Summer Camp Program

New technology improves camper attendance tracking and security

Summit, NJ, July 30, 2014 – This summer, the Summit Area YMCA has integrated iPad technology into the Camp Program. The iPads are used by staff at all of the Y camps including the Berkeley Heights YMCA, the Summit YMCA, and The Learning Circle YMCA as a means to improve attendance tracking and camper security. 

The iPads are loaded with software that allows parents to digitally sign-in their child in the morning upon arrival at camp and sign-out at the end of the day, which provides camp directors with more accurate attendance tracking. Additionally, the iPads allow camp staff to have direct and immediate access to emergency information for each camper, which includes parents’ names, phone numbers, and emergency contact information.

“Youth development is a key area of focus for the Y, as a cause-driven organization,” commented Paul Kieltyka, President and CEO of the Summit Area YMCA. “The safety and security of all the children in our care is of paramount importance. Integrating the iPads into our camp program has made our protocol and processes even more efficient and effective, for parents and staff alike.”

The Summit Area YMCA is an ACA accredited camp with camp counselors who are highly trained, motivated and eager to provide children with a wonderful summer experience. As a nonprofit, the Summit Area YMCA provides financial assistance for qualifying families. For more information, please visit or call 908.273.3330.
