Summer Care at the Y

 

Due to Covid-19 the Saratoga Regional YMCA is offering a modified Summer Care program in place of our traditional CampToga program. Children may attend all 10 weeks of, one week, or any combination of weeks. Summer Care is open to children in grades K-5.

Adventure Camp (formally known as travel camp) has been cancelled for the 2020 season. 

Full-Day Program

Our program will begin on Monday, June 29th and runs through September 4th, from 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM, with the majority of the age appropriate activities taking place 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Why Summer Care at the Y?

  • Peace of Mind: We provide families with a safe place for children to enjoy their summer. Children are supervised by our well-trained staff at ratios of 1:10 at all times.
  • YMCA’s four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are a part of everything we do.
  • Thoughtful programming that builds healthy minds, bodies, and spirits—daily.
  • Fun: Children will enjoy activities and games like nature walks, crafts, water games with sprinklers, color runs, kickball, gaga, talent shows, water balloon launches, archery, soccer skills and drills, basketball skills and drills, obstacle courses, quidditch and much more!

Stay connected!  Please take a moment to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram. It is a great way to stay connected with your child's daily activities as we post daily.
