All staff are CPR-certified and go through extensive training in order to give all kids a fun, safe and memorable summer!

Y Summer Care & COVID-19:

We’ve updated Summer Care Operational Procedures to help combat the spread of COVID-19: Classrooms will be structured so that each class will have their own space, reducing interactions with other classrooms. Classroom ratios will have two teachers – ten participants.

Your safety is our number one priority. Our team is working with the CDC and health care professionals in order to help educate parents and Summer Care participants about safety and virus prevention methods. More information to come on this topic soon!

All parents will need to sign an additional waiver for Summer Care, as even with additional safety policies and guidelines, no one can guarantee that we are safe from the virus. The YMCA cannot control what all those involved with Summer Care do outside of our premises, which is why a safe camp starts and ends at home. We need your help keeping our participants, our staff and all of our families safe.
