The countdown to summer is on and kids aren’t the only ones looking forward to the summer months. The YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge & South Amboy (MEWSA) is getting ready for an influx of programming and activities that stimulate both mind and body, in an effort to help children have an amazing summer.  “It’s important that children both play and learn throughout the summer,” says Rose Cushing President & CEO. “From summer camp to swim lessons to specialty camps, the Y is able to support all children and help them discover and reach their full potential.”

The Y offers a great day camp experience with 11 locations to choose from, providing kids with adventure, healthy fun, personal growth and friendships that can take a so-so summer and turn it into a memory that lasts a lifetime.  The YMCA of MEWSA’s camps provide a welcoming environment for kids where they can belong, build relationships, develop character and discover their potential.  The Y’s unique camp program bridges the gap between child care and day camp, offering campers from five years old to pre-teens a broad range of age-appropriate activities, including recreational swimming, summer reading, enrichment and specialty camps, arts and crafts, themed activity weeks and much more.  Weekly educational field trips will stimulate their imaginations and creativity..  

Since summer is synonymous with swim season, the Y encourages families to explore the benefits of swimming while also keeping safety a priority. Through the Y’s updated Safety Around Water program, parents and caregivers will be encouraged to help their children learn fundamental water safety and swimming skills. During the eight-day course, children will learn how to respond if they find themselves in unexpected water situations.
