During the summer, participants are involved in a fun and innovative program consisting of swimming lessons every day, free swim every day, inside games and activities, outside games and activities, arts and crafts, and field trips.
At the Y this summer, children ages 5 to 14 can do everything from learning how to swim to improving their reading skills. Every day your child will participate in learning enrichment activities that stretch their mind, daily devotions that will teach them character through skits and songs, and health and nutrition through the daily snack and lunch program. By the day’s end, a parent can rest in knowing that their children have participated in activities and learned something that will help them in the coming year.
